Talk:Building Automation

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hello there,

My name is Christopher and I'm a building automation consultant with a specialty in energy efficiency. I've been asked to develop a curriculum for a Controls 101 course, primarily for energy management professionals. One possible plan is to have the students further develop the available wiki resources on the subject, so I'm looking for an active community to contribute to. It looks as though there hasn't been much content contributed, and I'd rather not build from the ground up without assistance. If I were to begin developing this resource, are there others working on this project?

Looking forward to meeting you

Welcome! There is no one currently active in developing building automation content. Feel free to move in and make it your own. I have developed content myself here, and also been successful in having students develop content. To have students develop the content, you will need to give them a good outline and template. For an example of my approach, see Project Management/Organization as a sample of a completed page, and Project Management/Process as an example of what they had to start with. Each of those pages is intended to be a week of content in a semester-length course. To see a completed course, take a look at IT Fundamentals.
For examples of courses where the students wrote the actual study content instead of providing links and a summary, see Motivation and emotion/Book and Wikibooks: Introduction to Computer Information Systems. Both of these are completely student-developed. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:20, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
