This post was another gem from practical BIM, and when shared on LinkedIn it started a good debate over the topic with Paul from Parametric Monkey. Whether you think of BIM as a tool or a process, it has come a long way. However there is always room for improvement, and one of those areas for improvement is in education, particular at the University and post-secondary level. However, all is not lost as some Universities and schools have picked up the cause and are doing great things with it (Paul pointed out a few examples and programs in his comments).
