Too, Eric G., Betts, Martin, & Dowdle, David (2002) Approaches to Construction Information Technology Education. In ITC@EDU 1st International Workshop on Construction Information Technology in Education, 12 to 13 September 2002, Portoroz, Slovenija.
This paper evaluates three current approaches adopted by construction educators to address the need for future IT knowledge and skills for construction professional. The three approaches are (1) Continuing Professional Development, (2) Incorporating IT modules into existing construction courses, and (3) Interdisciplinary courses with IT as the main integrating theme. This paper concludes that the Interdisciplinary approach with IT as the main integrating theme is the best way forward to equip future construction graduates with IT knowledge and skills that are critical for the development of the construction industry.
