Teaching and Supervision

Teaching Statement

I have published a self-learning/teaching book for beginners to learn ArchiCAD titled: Easy Steps to ArchiCAD (2019). ISBN: 978-0-473-48853-6

This manual is designed for students in construction-related programmes who want an easier means of learning how to draft designs using ArchiCAD software. This teaching manual helps you learn to use various tools in ArchiCAD while designing a simple residential building. The focus is on providing a good understanding of the major steps required to design a building in ArchiCAD. It illustrates basic information in ArchiCAD commonly used to design buildings. This manual simulates a real architectural project, in detail, and offers explained steps to the use of ArchiCAD for building designs.
