BEST PRACTICE CONTRIBUTIONS IN THE ARCHITECTURE TEACHING PROCESS WITH ICT SUPPORT: THE CASE OF THE AUTONOMOUS UNIVERSITY OF BAJA CALIFORNIA

D. Chan, T. Gaona, E. Perezchica

Autonomous University of Baja California (MEXICO)
Facing the global development demands and the vertiginous technological advances, the incorporation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the process of the Higher Education (HE) is recognized by international and national organisms as one of the most efficient strategies to expand and diversify the HE.

Due to the above, Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in addition to identifying the needs and fundamental processes of the transition between the learning modalities face the need to adequate the instructional design of their academic contents with the ICT incorporation and with the characteristics of diverse professional disciplines.

In that sense, in the architecture and design teaching, the nuances of the instructional design with the ICT incorporation acquire special characteristics, given the skills and competencies that students need to develop for their professional practice. Furthermore, in order to generate new knowledge and provide the fundaments to the formal development of design and architecture proposals, the professional practice has to incorporate the development of scientific research, such us the documentary research.

Taking into account the above, the Faculty of Architecture and Design (FAD), of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC) taught the subject of Documentary research methods and its expression (DRME) with the support of ICT and the UABC online learning Platform. This course is also taught in two other architecture programs within the university. Given this situation, and taking into account the best practices of teaching of the DRME course in the FAD, and the results of its application, test and evaluation in diverse modalities of learning, an instructional design of a Model Course of DRME (DRMECM) was developed with the intent to share it with the other architecture programs of the university.

The objective of this paper is to present the best practices and results obtained in the process of design and application of the DRMECM, and the vision of its application in other architecture programs of the university.

For this reason, three sections integrate the document:
1) DRMECM instructional design process,
2) The best practices of its application in the FAD, and
3) Vision of its application in other architecture programs of the UABC.
