We will illustrate the development of an innovative pilot program that invited industry professionals to teach Bluebeam Revu to students and faculty at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. What began as an informal discussion at Bluebeam eXtreme Conference 2016 about the impact of training conducted by industry professionals using real-world examples quickly evolved into a pilot program designed to boost students’ future employment opportunities by exposing them to the tools and workflows necessary to succeed. Learn how to map Revu training against a construction management curriculum among varying class levels. We will also offer advice for those interested in implementing similar programs, including a roadmap for faculty, industry partners, and student/intern engagement.

In this session, learn more about:

  • The impact of Bluebeam Revu training conducted by industry professionals using real-world examples.
  • Identifying the most useful Bluebeam Revu features and tools for Construction Management students
  • Assessing an appropriate approach for the sequence of these Bluebeam Revu topics among varying class levels
  • Developing your own roadmap for engagement with faculty, industry partners, and students and interns
