Digital technologies are changing the way we live, think, learn, and conduct businesses across the world. In fact, information and communication technologies have completely changed the way architects practice their profession, and thus it is imperative that architectural educators embrace this change intelligently in other to enhance the quality of products they unleash unto the labour market. In view of the important role architects play in the construction industry, new and innovative teaching approaches are needed in the delivery of curriculum that reflects both contemporary and future trends in information management in the construction industry. This paper aims at developing a conceptual framework for understanding the adoption of Computer –aided architectural design (CAAD) in the teaching and learning of architecture in the Schools of Architecture. It relies on extensive review of literature, the precepts of the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology to develop a conceptual framework for understanding the key issues, challenges, and prospects of the adoption CAAD technologies in the delivery of architecture curriculum content in the Schools of Architecture in the developing countries. The proposed framework is expected to firstly, extend understanding on innovative and sustainable pedagogies for producing information technology compliant professionals in architecture profession in particular, and construction industry in general; and secondly provide the basis for empirical research on this subject.
