Paper: "Digital Curation in Architecture Curricula and vocational training for Architects: The DEDICATE Framework in Architectural CAD Courses Design", Dr Ian Anderson and Dr Ruggero Lancia, HATII (Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute), University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK

Abstract—As the design processes in architectural practices switch toward entirely digital workflows, architects are gradually required, because of their legal and commercial liability, to provide for both a relatively long-term curation of their own digital products and the deposit of authoritative data. But, despite being the sole curation actors for their data, architects receive little education or training in either pertinent competences nor agreed and established procedures to comply with these duties. In this paper, the DEDICATE project, an AHRC funded project hosted by the HATII of the University of Glasgow, will be discussed to explain its role in the design of Digital Curation
courses within architectural CAD education and architects' vocational training.
