Keith E. Hedges, AIA, NCARB

Professor of Architecture

Keith teaches the architectural structures sequence at Drury and is a registered architect. He has taught full-time for nearly twenty years and has developed a teaching repertoire exceeding twenty courses for architecture and engineering university degree granting programs. The courses range from architectural design to engineering technologies. He follows a backward design model with an emphasis on aligning the outcomes, assessments, and the teaching / learning strategies. Keith created the parti pris pedagogy and the liberal engineering approach for teaching structures to architecture students in liberal arts contexts. — Keith brings over thirty refereed papers and two dozen presentations mostly regarding emergent pedagogies and the nature of digital technologies intervening in higher education. He has presented his work at venues such as the University of Oxford and the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule. He received two national AIA awards for innovative curriculum development through the AIA Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) BIM Awards. He was published twice in The AIA Report on University Research (Volumes 4 and 5). — Keith is the editor-in-chief of the Architectural Graphic Standards (Student Edition), and served on the advisory board for the previous student edition. He served on the Project Committee and Design Workgroup for the National BIM Standard (NBIMS) Version 2. He received Drury University Faculty Award for Scholarship and the Drury University President’s Award of Excellence for Community Engagement.
