Ideal Ideation: A Framework for the Management of Sketch Inhibition Among Undergraduate Designers
Sketch inhibition among undergraduates is a growing but under-researched issue. Affected students avoid engaging with sketching during concept development, they also have little understanding of the benefits it offers effective ideation as a language and a cognitive tool which in turn affects design quality and impedes commercial activity. Causes include skill-set shortage, prevalence of technology and social and educational issues. The proposed management framework aims to reduce inhibition via a three-part tool for use by higher education at strategic, pedagogic and individual levels
