Due to environmental concerns Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has become an essential part on architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) education programs. Emergent technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be used as a powerful didactic method approach to improve learning outcomes in terms of ESD. This paper proposes the use of BIM to enhance sustainable development education through the development of construction projects for community development. In this work, we propose a framework that will provide guidelines to effectively incorporate BIM as a tool for enhancing ESD. First, we reviewed the current state of the art of BIM as a didactic method for construction courses in a university in Mexico. We applied the framework in a group of 21 students. The results showed an improvement of 20% in students ESD learning outcomes. Moreover, the participants reported a better understanding on sustainable development problems as well as higher commitment to get involved in social development projects.
