There is increasing interest concerning daylighting in the building sector. However, such knowledge is difficult to penetrate the curricula of architects and designers as existing educational programmes often do not provide sufficient training on BPS. This also leads to superficial use of daylight simulations.
This paper presents a proposal for a needs-based education package on daylighting design, that mixes modular eLearning and an intensive summer school, called NLITED.
The NLITED model includes modules on daylight simulation whose implementation (in eLearning key) can trigger a constructive discussion and receive valuable feedback from the Nordic community of BPS specialists.
