An evaluation of the design and use of applied visual interactive resources for teaching building regulations in higher education built environment programmes
MetadataShow full item record
This research is situated in the ﬁeld of higher education teaching and learning and speciﬁcally relates to building regulation pedagogy. A research gap has been identiﬁed with scope to develop online visual building regulations for use in higher education built environment programmes, and in parallel, contribute to the teaching and learning research ﬁelds of pedagogy, online learning and visual literacy. The aim of this research was to evaluate the design and use of applied visual interactive resources suitable for use in building regulation subjects in higher education built environment programmes. One research question was investigated, namely, whether three examples demonstrating applied visual interactive building regulations were eﬀective and useful in their design. Informed by constructivist theory, an animated video, an interactive learning object and a gamiﬁed learning object were proﬁled as examples within a dedicated research website. Four anonymous survey forms were included on the website to capture feedback. Data received was then evaluated using a single-loop developmental evaluation methodology which informed their systematic redesign during the survey. Survey participants unanimously agreed that applied visual interactive building regulations were eﬀective for online learning. The three examples proﬁled were acceptable to most survey participants. The research ﬁndings conclude that there is signiﬁcant scope for further research and development of online visual building regulations for higher education built environment programmes.
