Abstract

As product development teams become global in scale, more of this process is carried out in the digital domain. This paper examines the impact of basing a student design project in this environment, and in particular how the increased documentation and reflection afforded by this impacts upon student learning. The mechanisms for achieving this included templates, information repositories and video presentations. It was found that a shared information resource had an impact on concept direction and that although students found critical reflection on their design process difficult, that the increased documentation of a digital repository encouraged more transparent working practices.
