Digital Technology and its Effect on Pedagogy in Architectural Engineering Technology

James E. Fuller, AIA

Ward College of Technology University of Hartford West Hartford, Connecticut


Digital technology is rapidly changing the way teachers teach throughout academia. This is especially true in Architectural Engineering Technology. The effect of technology on teaching falls into three areas: - Curriculum Supplement- How traditional subjects and methods are effected by technology - ways to better illustrate traditional subjects using technology - ways of expanding relationships of subject areas by using technology; - Curriculum Enhancement - How technology provides new ways of teaching and learning - transforming traditional topics and methods into electronic media and using the new medium to take the subject matter beyond that which could have been shown previously; - Curriculum Specific to Technology - New curriculum developed due to technology - teaching courses or parts of courses that are necessary because of technology such as hardware and software issues

With these effects in mind, what are the ramifications? What extended effects do these introduce? What are the influences that need to be evaluated and considered to effectively prepare ourselves to teach with these in mind? Where are our students in this?
