Adopting green technology, buildings management, building preservation and distortion of buildings relates to architectural education in Malaysia. The Malaysian Government have a dream of implementing National Technology Policy, in realizing the national goal to achieve this National Green Technology Policy. Researches have been carried out in design course content, especially related elements of the environment and design content, components of sustainable design and on the content of the studio program. Few researches have been carried out in pedagogical aspect of Architecture. This paper expresses a proposed method of an on-going post graduate research to determine the pedagogical method use by lecturers in the department of Architecture, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). This research has been carried out using the Qualitative method of research with Delphi technique as the methodology. First proposed two pilot surveys were carried out involving the educators and students; the result of the pilot survey would form the major part of the research questions which would form the second round Delphi method questionnaire. Throughout the designation study years for Architectural programme they have only 2 main courses and 2 elective courses related to sustainable design out of 35 core courses and 10 electives for the architectural students to choose from. Findings from the literature reviewed and the pilot studies carried out it shows that 20 different categories of pedagogy are used by UTM staff. The study would be subjected to a second round of Delphi method concentrating on the Staff only to streamline the pedagogy that would be suggested for an effective incorporation of components of sustainable design in the curriculum of UTM.
