November 2013

The Perpetual Student

For design professionals, learning never ends. And that's okay, because they understand that to stop learning stops them dead in their professional tracks. Luckily, right around the corner is the premier learning and training event of the year, Autodesk University. But before you get there, the November 2013 issue of AUGIWorld offers an education and training appetizer.

Curt Moreno puts the Focus on Trainers and delivers a surprising truth - many people are trainers without realizing it. In AEC Training and Education for Strategic Success, Nancy McClure demonstrates the importance of education and training while processes are evolving during a transition to BIM.

Actually, every article in every issue of AUGIWorld is a learning experience - our authors, experts in their respective industries, see to that. See what inspires you in this issue.
