Education for Practice [Conference Proceedings]

There are many of us trying to make place for CAAD in a natural way in the
Curriculum of the Architect school. We would like to make CAAD useful to
the students already during their studies. Even if we have the support of
our collegues for running courses there is very often no space in the
timetable. And even if we have all the entusiasm of our students it is hard
to practice your CAAD knowledge on projects where it is not asked for.
The education of architects in the use of computers has lead me to try to
find "the roots of education of architects" in general. A collegue of mine in a
bookshelf of course litterature in Informatics found and put into my hands
"Educating the reflective practitioner" by Donald Schön. It lead to an
interesting process of personal reflection and discussion within our CAAD
We think by the way that the theme of the conference points to the heart of
the message in Donald Schöns book and we are inviting him as a key note
speaker at the Conference.
