Abstract

Research to establish pedagogy for imparting work based skills to students studying higher education courses in building surveying is being undertaken by the author at Sheffield Hallam University. An overview of the work thus far is provided. The pathway undertaken by typical building surveying industry entrants is outlined, along with the need for work based skills to be gained before employment commences. Research is based upon requirements expressed by the four stakeholders to building surveying education, (learner, education provider, employer and professional body). The rationale for provision of work based skills alongside academic learning is established. Use of a modified action research based methodology is proposed and justified, by reference to existing literature and the required research outcomes. Use of an enquiry based learning model using industrial simulation is proposed and justified. Factors influencing successful delivery of industrial simulations and enquiry based learning are identified, and the measures requiring to be addressed
