Our featured guest speaker will be Dr. Ricardo Pontes Resende, Assistant Professor at the Architecture and Urbanism Department at Iscte - University Institute of Lisbon. An expert educator and innovator in making BIM accessible to non-BIM specialists, he teaches master’s level courses in Architecture and launched the bachelor's in Digital Technologies and Sustainable Built Environment at his university. His research is situated at the intersection of Sustainable Construction and BIM.

Dr. Pontes Resende will share an interesting design-to-construction workflow he introduced to his students this semester through a highly engaging and collaborative classroom project. He will show how Autodesk Forma enabled him to immerse his students in designing tall structures for the same dense, urban site, where they needed to work together to ensure a cohesive plan, including analyzing the environmental impact. He will also discuss how his students refined their designs in Autodesk Revit, and how he used Autodesk Construction Cloud to manage their work. Jackson Sensat, Autodesk Implementation Consultant, will then demonstrate how this project could be extended even further to engage students in simulating the construction phase.

You will take away practical tips and tricks for your classroom implementation while deepening your knowledge about the convergence of design and construction and how BIM processes are moving upstream.

These one-hour interactive sessions are a combination of information sharing and product demonstrations. Recordings are available after each event, but educators are encouraged to join us live and make connections within our vibrant education community. We’ll also leave time open for participants to ask the Autodesk Construction Cloud team questions.

In addition to this episode, we have recorded a playlist of previous episodes with an exciting array of topics and speakers meant for you to help your students discover how cutting-edge technology can overcome some of construction’s biggest challenges.

You can catch up on previous webinars in this series here. 

We’re excited to continue partnering with you to develop the necessary digital skills and mindset in our next generation of diverse builders to build a better world!
