A Method to Introduce Building Performance Simulation to Beginners

Niko Gentile, Jouri Kanters, Henrik Davidsson
2020 Energies  
The findings suggest that the method prompts higher level thinking in BPS and collaborative learning in groups.  ...  Competence in performing Building Performance Simulations (BPS) is a fundamental asset for an energy specialist.  ...  However, while the control method is built on expected learning outcomes, the learning spirals are built on the students' learning process [11] , see Section 2.3.  ...
