Construction Management (CM) programmes generally build on principles
in traditional science and social-science disciplines, creatively applied to
the construction sector. In the last two decades, there has been
significant growth in the number of universities in Australia and UK,
offering construction management programmes. Despite these trend,
there has been dearth of studies that investigate the alignment of the
curriculum content with assessment requirements in construction
management subjects.
This study appraises the issues pertaining to constructive alignment in
construction management programmes delivered in the higher education
sector. This work provides an ethnographic insight on the perceived
benefits of Constructive Alignment in relation to academic performance,
student experience, and student-satisfaction in the UK. Future work will
compare outcomes in constructively-aligned courses in other academic
institution. This work also suggest best practices for implementing
constructive-alignment in the delivery of built environment courses.
