Description

Introduction
The Australian BIM Academic Forum is a collection of universities and industry across Australia looking to develop a strategy for a unified approach to BIM and digital engineering education. This group of around 100 hundred representatives released a framework for programs to be built around in 2021.

The latest leadership team are developing a strategy that tackles multiple levels of education. This is due to the skills shortage but also in recognition that digital delivery has matured significantly over the past few years. This maturity has led to a greater diversity in roles and a need to add digital delivery from Primary School and High School, to Tech schools and TAFE, through to universities and professional development training.

Impact
The impact recognised to date, is a greater understanding of the content needed in the programs and courseware. This is increasing with the next releases as educators have requested advice to implement the courseware.
