Peer-Teaching in Construction Project Management Scheduling Anthony Torres and Vedaraman Sriraman AbstractA peer-teaching method has been implemented in Construction Project ManagementScheduling (CPMS) course that focuses on Project Management Software (PMS)learning. The two graduate students that were enrolled in the CPMS course were requiredto learn and teach the PMS package, Primavera, to the remaining undergraduate studentsin the course. This learning method promotes topic retention, as the student is required tobe the expert on the topic. The results were verified through in-course surveys,comparative assignment grades, and graduate student reflection summary. The resultsshow that the graduate students not only enjoyed teaching the topic, but they feel thatthey learned more by the employed teaching method. Additionally, the results show thatthe undergraduates students’ learning was not adversely affected by having their fellowstudents teach the topic. The survey also indicates that the undergraduate’s studentspreferred the peer-teaching method to standard professor lecture and demonstration. Thepaper concludes with recommendations for future work.
