Fifteen advanced architecture students took part in the teaching intervention designed to train them on how to control the employment conditions of construction workers, especially migrant ones. As the highest authority in the construction site, these future construction site directors are the ones who should take social responsibility inherent to their position. A novel Swiss teaching methodology was successfully implemented as it contributes towards the achievement of the learning goals as well as the participants’ behavioral changes. The overall mark of the course awarded by the participants was 9.73/10. The impact of this intervention transcended the classroom and prompted the development of training programs in the construction site and the integration of new contents to the curriculum of the construction site directors training course.
