Twenty Years Later: Reflections & Projections on Research & Teaching

The Group Photo

While talking about their teaching specialty's relative isolation under the shade of a live oak in Berkeley, California in 1982, "Charlie" Brown and Ed Arens came to realize that building science faculty need to exchange ideas, materials, and resources on curriculum, teaching and research. To support this inter-scholastic exchange they formed the West Coast ECS Club. The first organizational meeting at the International Daylighting Conference at Phoenix, AZ on Feb 17, 1983 attracted 30 members. Over the summer the organization adopted the name Society of Building Science Educators (Ed's favorite name). The first SBSE meeting was at the University New Mexico's School of Architecture on Sept 10, 1983. SBSE held its first curriculum development retreat at Heceta Head in Oregon in 1986.

Come celebrate SBSE's 20th year reunion (okay we can't quite count) at the 2004 retreat focusing on research and teaching themes originating from early SBSE members. How has SBSE influenced teaching? Where is SBSE headed in terms of embedding research into architectural education? Submit a proposal or simply register to participate. Space is limited.

Evening Programs & Roundtables:

Wednesday Evening Program (everyone): Please bring a favorite teaching aid in sufficient quantity for all participants (approx. 50), to the Teaching Exchange during our first evening program on June 7. This tradition started 6 years ago and past favors have included a portable sundial from Cris Benton, cool lighting slides from Barbara Erwine, Energy Scheming baseball caps from G. Z. Brown's ESBL team, a pocket balometer from Troy Peters, new books from Wiley, courtesy of Amanda Miller, senior editor. Bring cool stuff to share!
Thursday Evening Program (everyone): Sue Roaf, Oxford Brookes University, "Future-proofing Buildings and Cities against Climate Change"
Friday Evening Program (everyone): Gwen Garrison, Institute at Indian Hill, "Evaluation Updates from the Agents of Change Project: Are We Making a Difference?"
Roundtable 1: Playing with Infrared Imaging Tools:J. Wasley, UWM, VITAL SIGNS-IR is a proposal to introduce thermal imaging into architectural curricula across the United States, Canada and beyond. This roundtable will discuss the initiative put forward by SBSE and give participants an opportunity to learn how to use the IR camera.
Roundtable 2: Teaching in the Next 20 Years:H. Wu, CalPoly Pomona, with pre-dinner libations, Hofu promises to share his thoughts, his anxiousness, his dreams, and fears with colleagues in this retreat about the task of looking into the future of our profession, potentially lost in advanced gadgets, new attractions, and obesity in space. Do our abilities to conduct real-time simulations and derive accurate predictions really improve building design? What will it take to make our profession a necessity when everyone proclaims oneself expert with expert systems? Will abundant renewable energy resources be created and diminish our energy and environmental emphasis? Will we be able to teach Building Sciences and integrating the knowledge into building design through virtual classes and design labs?
Roundtable 3: AoC Evaluation and Future Teachers: A. Kwok, UO (with post-dinner libations) an informal discussion session with faculty who will offer perspectives on the job market. Please bring questions or simply come and listen to discussion. The roundtable discussion can also include a critique for individuals interested in pursuing a career in teaching, teaching philosophies, and strategies for entering the job market. Agents of Change evaluation report will be presented by Gwen Garrison from the Institute at Indian Hill.
Roundtable 4: Future Retreats 2005, 2006, 2007+: J. Wasley, UWM, C. Theis, LSU discussion session about future retreat venues. The 2005 retreat will take place next summer in Savannah, Georgia coordinated by Emad Afifi. Would you like to co-organize a retreat in the future? Bring essential information (e.g. photos, maps, lodging, and theme ideas) to the group. Get your calendars ready!
