Dr. Tamera L. McCuen, a professor of Construction Science, recently coauthored the book, Developing BIM Talent: A Guide to the BIM Body of Knowledge with Metrics, KSAs, and Learning Outcomes. Other authors include Dr. Wei Wu, Dr. Glenda Mayo, Dr. Raja R.A. Issa, and Dana K. Smith.
Developing BIM Talent teaches readers how to implement a state-of-the-art Building Information Modeling (BIM) training and education program. The book provides a roadmap through the comprehensive BIM metrics and KSAs detailed in the BIM Body of Knowledge sponsored by the Academica Interoperability Coalition.
Dr. McCuen has authored several publications on BIM implementation and education. This book, informed by her expertise, offers an essential resource for corporate trainers and instructors teaching BIM, human resources professionals charged with recruiting BIM talent, as well as leadership interested in credentialing and BIM certification programs.
It is an important addition to the body of knowledge on BIM education and will be helpful for Construction Science education programs across the country, including the one here at University of Oklahoma.
Congratulations to Dr. McCuen on her publication!
