Abstract

Using a scenario-based approach, this paper explores the teaching potential of a web-based simulation game to deliver the Architectural Studies curriculum. The contract management simulator is a web-based game that aims to help architecture students make sense of the contract management process and to develop their knowledge and understanding of the legalities of relationships between parties involved in the design and construction of buildings. The system, in conjunction with two other internet based systems being developed by the applicants, will give students access to information about the construction industry which is not readily available from any other source.
