Abstract

This paper reviews the importance of sketching
to designers and clarifies the key techniques
used at different stages of designing. The
analysis of the author’s sketching expertise is
described and a survey of undergraduate
perceptions of sketching was carried out using
the Nominal Group Technique (NGT) and a
questionnaire. A revised strategy for the
teaching and learning of sketching to first year
industrial design and technology
undergraduates is outlined and early
observations of its implementation are reported.
