Construction Education

Research Topics in Education

This division of the Annual Proceedings provides for the reporting of research, which communicates new knowledge about phenomena, whether it is qualitative or quantitative. The term "research" can be defined as any effort of careful, systematic, patient study, and investigation in some field of knowledge, undertaken to discover or establish facts and principles. More precisely, a research paper should communicate confidence that particular knowledge claims about  phenomena are true or false. Papers must have immediate application to construction education's programs, curricula, and courses. Methodologies and paper elements are identical to the IJCER's research guidelines.

 

Undergraduate Education

This division of the Annual Proceedings is primarily focused at the undergraduate level of education. Papers should describe how a particular instructional design or strategy is unique or innovative.  The paper needs to show how this design/strategy can improve the aspects of a delivery system or can increase professional knowledge in the classroom.  Contributors need not limit themselves to selecting courses/curricula with innovative content. Also sought are the descriptions of traditional courses taught in unique and innovative ways. Papers can focus on instructional materials such as books, films, videotapes, computer software, filmstrips, Web sites, and other mediated or unconventional formats vis-a-vis its actual/potential classroom use.  Materials should have proven their effectiveness in the undergraduate construction educational setting.

Graduate Education

This division of the Annual Proceedings is primarily focused at the graduate level of education.  Paper content is similar to that of the division of undergraduate education...but at the graduate level. 

 General Topics in Education

General Topics is a division that does not involve undergraduate and graduate education.  Papers can contain unique educational issues and activities that are located and addressed within industrial training, public schools, and community workshops. Collaborative papers and works from industry and academic construction educators are also welcome.



Construction Practice

Research

This division of the Annual Proceedings provides for the reporting of research, which communicates new knowledge about phenomena, whether it is qualitative or quantitative. The term "research" can be defined as any effort of careful, systematic, patient study and investigation in some field of knowledge, undertaken to discover or establish facts and principles. More precisely, a research paper should communicate confidence that particular knowledge claims about  phenomena are true or false. Papers must have immediate application to the practice of construction. Methodologies and paper elements are identical to the JCE's research guidelines.

 

General Practice Topics

Papers can contain unique items of engineering, issues relating to materials/methods, construction applications, special construction projects, computer applications, communication technology, and construction law/insurance/bonding issues.
