During the next months, the ESSENSE partnership will be working on the development of a Blueprint to ensure the follow-up of ESSENSE results. The partnership has identified the main Educational programs, policies and agendas at European and National level in order to analyse the impact that ESSENSE could have on its deployment. In the last quarter of 2020, the didactic material will be ready for testing. ESSENSE will enroll an official announcement to the educational community (teachers, student and experts in BIM, habitat design, education, etc.) to participate in the pilot test action. During this pilot test, the educational philosophy, joint curriculum and didactic materials will be assessed within the eLearning platform. This action will enable the partnership to polish the mismatches on the didactic materials or eLearning platform functionalities.
During the last months, ESSENSE has developed its Educational Philosophy and Joint Curriculum. You can find the full summary in here.
The Joint Curriculum defines the necessary knowledge and skills
components regarding key principles of BIM; Smart Housing and Ambient Assisted
Living (AAL). It covers different aspects related to CAD Design, sensors
architecture and BIM management with training tools, didactic materials and
eLearning environment to address the different profiles of learners in a
Joint Curriculum is divided into 5 modules:
Basic concepts on Building Information Modelling
The objective of the unit „Basic Concepts on BIM“ is to obtain an
overview of the definition of BIM and the possible uses. What are the
advantages of BIM or computer-aided design concerning the data associated with
the 3D objects.
The needs of the senior citizens and their caretakers
The unit “The needs of the senior citizens and their caretakers”
aims to prepare building designers, construction workers, and related
professionals to make design decisions that support healthy active ageing, and
to implement those solutions in new buildings and refurbishments by focusing on
user-centred design approaches.
Smart Housing and AAL
This unit’s purpose is to introduce the concept of AAL and Smart
Housing to the students. Furthermore, this unit will allow students to get
insights into the basic principles of sensing, sensor data acquisition, signal
processing and modelling based on data, to design and implement applications
for assisting older adults.
between BIM, Smart Housing and AAL
As a goal, this unit “Interactions between BIM, Smart Housing and
AAL” aims to introduce the student to using AAL principles and Smart Housing
technologies within the BIM method. How to combine the principles of Ambient
Assisting Living with the concept of Building Information Modelling.
Management, Innovation Management and collective competencies for optimum
implementation of BIM principles and AAL concepts.
Module 5 comprises all the necessary knowledge for the
implementation of BIM methodology from an Innovation Management approach. This
module will provide learners with different concepts and methodologies to make
the most of the implementation of BIM.
These modules will be freely
available at the end of the project in 2021 on the ESSENSE Collaborative
Platform with innovative quizzes, exercises and some extra lectures.
