2014 CACB Conference Call for Position Papers

The Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) is planning a conference in September 2014 to review the holistic education of an architect. The theme of this conference, Educating Future Architects, will focus on the education of future practicing architects from a student beginning a pre-architecture program to licensure and registration. At this conference, the CACB and its collateral organizations (CALA, CASA, CCUSA, RAIC) will be concerned with the future education and internship process for architectural professionals. The last such conference was in September 2001.

The CACB notes that, “the roles of architects and the face of the profession are changing. Current practice does now, and future practice will, require new knowledge and skills. How we prepare graduates for success in this evolving and expanding discipline is critical to our collective futures. It is time to take a collective fresh look at how the delivery of architectural education and the requirements of post-graduate internship can be better integrated and how the partnership between educators and those in professional practice can support a shared outcome.”

In order to develop more meaningful sessions, the Conference Organizing Committee is issuing an open call for position papers relevant to topics of current and future architectural education. Once collated and summarized, the resulting position papers will be used to shape discussion sessions by the delegates (invited representatives of the various collateral organizations) at the September 2014 conference.
