Presented at Associated Schools of Construction 47th Annual Conference Proceedings: Omaha, Nebraska, April 6, 2011.
At universities offering professional degrees, such as construction management, some programs are moving towards and exploring alternative delivery methods for achieving the curriculum’s goals and objectives. This paper describes a curriculum integrated course founded in a project-based learning environment applied to a jobsite construction management undergraduate course being taught at a major university. A course overview describing the various delivery methods used (such as lectures, reading assignments, supplemental materials, guest lecturers, lab assignments, technology, and a jobsite visit) is presented. The benefits of course integration in a construction management undergraduate curriculum are emphasized and more fully explained. The unique student learning opportunities which were created from a project-based learning environment were depicted as they specifically relate to the class. Pedagogical insights into the organization, substance, and structure of the course are also provided.
