Abstract

With new building information modelling (BIM) workflows becoming required within the architecture, engineering and construction industry, more research is required to understand the best pedagogical delivery methods of this new spatial technology workflow. Mixed reality (MR) and mobile visualisation methods are identified as important technology drivers for rethinking higher education, practice driving learner engagement and spatial information delivery. This paper outlines qualitative results derived through thematic analysis of learner observation and reflections from a technology-enhanced lecture, and hands-on workshop focused on MR-BIM innovation within the construction industry. Forty-five (45) participants from a postgraduate construction course at an Australian University participated in answering the research question: “How do learners perceive the interactive visualisation mode of a presentation delivered through MR-BIM and mobile pedagogy?”. The results of the analysis identified two general themes (learning and technology) and five sub-themes (learning engagement, learning experience, technology experience, technology readiness and technology future). Students felt engaged during the session with observation supporting the reflective analysis evidenced by learners asking questions, commenting on technology possibilities and sharing of their experiences between peers, lecturers and social networks. More work is required on the delivery method, with only one-third of the reflections discussing the learning.

OtherThe ASCILITE 2019 Conference is ASCILITE’s 36th International Conference of Innovation, Practice and
Research in the Use of Educational Technologies in Tertiary Education. This year’s conference was hosted by the
Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), and held at the University’s campus, between 2 to 5 December
2019.
The theme of ASCILITE 2019 "Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart." brings together the focus on
the learner's needs in the use of technology and sound pedagogical practices. It recognizes the diverse motivation
behind each learner in the design of curriculum and the common goal in contributing to the betterment of the
global society. Singapore, being the place for people of different ethnicity, culture and religion to pursue their
passion and dreams, personifies the idea of “Diverse Goals” but “One Heart”. This theme also coincides with the
educational aspiration of SUSS, and Singapore at large, that regardless of students’ goals, different backgrounds
or life stages, it aims to equip them with the real-world knowledge and practice-oriented skills to excel, both in
life and in their chosen career. Welcome to ASCILITE 2019 in the city state Singapore.
