Advances in Engineering Education, v4 n3 Win 2015
This paper documents and assesses the development of a construction safety training module featuring interactive, BIM-enabled, 3D visualizations to test if such a tool can enhance safety training related to scaffolds. This research documents the technical challenges and the lessons learned through the development and administration of a prototype training module in a required undergraduate construction safety course at Colorado State University. Student feedback was strongly positive, and findings suggest that such an innovative teaching method may be more effective than traditional teaching methods based on pre and post knowledge-testing. Such research highlights future opportunities to develop more extensive and advanced training modules using interactive, BIM-enabled, 3D visualization techniques in support of safety training within construction education.
