2nd Built Environment Education Conference (BEECON 2006)

This event has finished

Taking place from Sept 12 – 13, at The Bonnington Hotel, Bloomsbury, London, the main theme of this international conference is to promote the advancement of the built environment and to strengthen the education process through its interaction with industry and practice. It is dedicated towards enhancing the quality of university education across all of the built environment disciplines. It will serve as forum for the sharing of good practice and will offer delegates the opportunity to critically and creatively engage with new ideas and research. These will assist them in developing their own approach to learning, teaching and assessment.

Organised by the Construction Industry Council (CIC), as a partner in ConstructionSkills, and The Centre for Education in the Built Environment (CEBE). This will be an opportunity for those with an interest in higher education in the broad discipline of the built environment to explore the benefits and added value of industry-university collaboration.
