IBPSA Webinar 2019 Session 7: Learning the fundamentals of Building
Performance Simulation through an experiential teaching approach

Wednesday 19th June 2019, 09h30 Ottawa, 13h30 UTC and 19h00 India time

By Ian Beausoleil-Morrison

About Webinar:

It is relatively easy to train architects and engineers to operate BPS tools
and to produce results, but there is considerable evidence to show that it
is quite difficult to produce accurate results, even for experienced users.
I believe that BPS suffers from a credibility gap and that its full
potential will only be realized once we adequately prepare users to
effectively apply tools with full knowledge of their applicability,
modelling limitations, and default methods and data, and provide them the
skill set to scrutinize their results. An experiential approach for
teaching the fundamentals of BPS through a learning spiral composed of four
modes of learning has been devised. The approach and the learning outcomes
that have been achieved through each of the learning modes will be
demonstrated in this webinar through examples extracted from the teaching of
a semester-long post-graduate course.
