Recent developments in visual programming environments that function as components of the BIM software point to new ways to interact with the emerging and evolving BIM paradigm now common to most educators. Presenting this material comprehensively across the program curriculum is difficult since the expertise to develop course-specific computational content may not yet exist.

This examination proposes and explores a methodology of assisting the current evolution of using computational frameworks but integrated into coursework across the curriculum. Building components in a modular form will allow both educators and students improved accessibility to the concepts of using a shared model in advanced analytical and visual ways. Underpinning this component approach is the availability of using node base parametric modeling tools to extend BIM software, notably Dynamo for Revit, and the nodes being developed for it.
