Georeferenced Extended Reality for Discovery Based Learning in Construction Education

Project description

This project focuses on developing pedagogical workflows in collaborative AR to enhance understanding of construction engineering processes. Learners in residential classrooms will be administered progressively complex coordination and clash-detection and resolution problems using Building Information Models to design and improve field construction processes.

Learning Goals

  1. Help construction and civil engineering students to build comprehensive knowledge of onsite construction tasks, and the dynamics and complexities involved in a typical construction project
  2. Exploit the multi-dimensional information flows enabled by XR visualization methods to learn and understand fundamental design, scheduling, and coordination issues inherent in the performance of field construction processes.
