Li, Juan; Li, Zhe; Liu, Shuo-Fang; Cheng, Meng – Interactive Learning Environments, 2020
Traditional methods for conducting performance evaluations of academic courses are somewhat limited in that they are unable to account for both quantitative and qualitative data. For example, the data used to assess student performance in a typical industrial design course are generally complex, multi-criteria, multi-variable, and frequently vague…

Ranscombe, Charlie; Bissett-Johnson, Katherine – Design and Technology Education, 2017
Literature on the use of design tools in educational settings notes an uneasy relationship between student use of traditional hand sketching and digital modelling tools (CAD) during the industrial design process. This is often manifested in the transition from sketching to CAD and exacerbated by a preference of current students to use CAD. In this…
