Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Learning in design is a phenomenon observed in design practice. Yet there is no comprehensive model or theory that explains the phenomenon and hence serves as a basis upon which a shared understanding can be evolved. This paper describes the development and evolution of a novel model of learning in design, LinD, which seeks to address the need for such a model. The model features formalisms for describing the cognitive activities of design and learning and three links that explain the interactions between these activities: the epistemic, teleological and temporal.
