Abstract

This paper presents the findings of the Australian Learning and Teaching Council funded discipline based initiative study investigating Professional Education in Built Environment and Design (2008 – 2009).

This project commenced with the aim of scoping the challenges facing Built Environment and Design (BED) Education (including disciplines of civil engineering, construction management, quantity surveying, property economics, urban and regional planning, project management, spatial science, planning, architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and industrial design). Early conversations with a range of stakeholders – academics, professionals and graduates in their early years of practice – quickly clarified that the singular challenge for most parties centres on the ways in which courses prepare graduates for the pace, diversity and flux of contemporary professional practice.

The study proceeded through the collection of qualitative and quantitative data including; literature review, focus groups, national online survey and workshops. This paper will report specifically on the findings of the national survey.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
