TH10 - THOUGHT LEADER SESSION-- Knowledge Transfer: An Ethical Responsibility for AEC Professionals

Thursday, October 4 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM « Back

The makeup of one's professional life is a collection of experiences that relate to the work they have done designing, specifying, fabricating, delivering and building.  For some of us – those with more experience and understanding of the industry – we feel an obligation to share and pass on this knowledge.  We do this by teaching, writing, speaking and sharing with those around us.  Together we’ll explore the tools and challenges of knowledge transfer of the last decade, and how it relates to today’s methods.  We will address the concerns that are impacting all of us regarding the reduction of skilled construction labor, our reduced understanding of tectonics in building science, our dependency on computer automation, and the loss of documentation skills to convey construction and detailing. The greatest fear we have is the missed opportunity to pass on what we have learned as professionals. It is our ethical responsibility and duty to prepare the next generation with the knowledge we share. The time is now!   Attend this program to develop key techniques and strategies you can implement immediately to ensure your knowledge of the AEC profession is passed on to the next generation.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
• Identify the clear challenges in our industry due to the lack of knowledge transfer
• Recognize that we all have the responsibility to address the issue and self-correct
• Describe key techniques and strategies for working with the next generation of professionals
• Transfer the most valuable asset - knowledge - to the next generation of professionals
