Designers’ search for relevant knowledge and the emergence of design innovation
Popovic, Vesna (2007) Designers’ search for relevant knowledge and the emergence of design innovation. In ConnectED : International Conference on Design Education, 9-12 July 2007, University of New South Wales, Sydney.
This is a further development of work related to the study of design knowledge and how this knowledge contributes to the development of design expertise. The intention of this work was to illustrate how designers – novice and experts search for the relevant knowledge within the design domain and how this knowledge contributes to the design of innovative devices. Therefore the main trust of this paper is to explore the above within the product design domain. Therefore, the current research identified the differences and similarities between novice and expert designers’ search. It also identified where and how that knowledge contributed to the emergence of an innovative design outcome. Novice and expert search has been integrated into the relevant models.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
