Development of Building Construction Blended Curriculum for Korean Universities


The COVID-19 pandemic and the Fourth Industrial Revolution have brought about significant changes in education at Korean universities. Two typical examples are the expansion of online learning and the spread of innovative teaching methods. Online education has advantages in that it allows learners to repeat learning and learn freely, regardless of time and place. It is necessary to develop and operate the curriculum in ways that can utilize the advantages of online education and compensate for its disadvantages. Therefore, this study sought to develop an education method that combines online and offline education. The main contents of the convergence curriculum developed in this study are as follows. Basic theory education is conducted online, and intensive education is conducted offline. 3 hours of education per week consists of 1.5-2 hours of online education and 1-1.5 hours of offline education. Learners learn in advance using an online system (LMS). Deep learning is conducted in the classroom. Deep learning consists of quizzes, complex problem solving, and Q&A. The curriculum focused on weekly education procedures and the contents of education for each 15-week period. The curriculum proposed by this research could be applied flexibly according to the education goals of the instructor and the learning capabilities of the students.
