It is believed that the architectural education process is considered one of the most important challenges that face the academic architects. It is responsible for creating consecutive generations of architects capable of practicing the profession efficiently and also able to deal with designing, planning and executive problems that face the architectural and urban work throughout all its stages and levels. Based on this, and in the middle of the vast development in communication methods and technology, the developed critical stream of architectural education methods appears, considering it a communicative process to cope with the requirements of this era. In this context, selecting the suitable methods to activate the required goals efficiently is of a great importance. Moreover, the architectural education needs a revision in choosing the best way of proposing the architectural information to the students, as well as reframing interaction and discussion between the students and their instructor to achieve effectiveness in the educational process and integrating the scientific study with career practice and field application.

This research paper discusses the importance of activating the role of various sensory effects in harmonizing the architectural education through the use of the suitable methods in proposing the architectural information to achieve some sort of continuity between the scientific study and the practical performance.
