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.
