The Delft Design Guide presents an overview of product design approaches and methods used in the Bachelor and Master curriculum at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering in Delft.
Product design at Industrial Design Engineering in Delft is regarded as a systematic and structured activity, purposeful and goal-oriented. Due to its complexity, designing requires a structured and systematic approach as well as moments of heightened creativity. In this guide we restrict ourselves deliberately to approaches we teach in Delft. Although we are aware of others, they are not included in this design guide. The design guide is largely based on existing books and articles; where possible we have tried our best to refer to these works in the appropriate form.

The objectives of the Delft Design Guide are threefold:

design students can use it as a ‘first aid’ in their design projects, managing their personal development of becoming a designer;
design tutors can use it as a reference manual to support students in their learning process; and
professional designers can user the design guide as a reference manual to support their design processes.

Most of the content of the Delft Design Guide is being trained in five bachelor design courses:

PO1: Introduction Industrial Design (IO1010, 7,5ects)
PO2: Concept Design (IO1050, 7,5ects)
PO3: Fuzzy Front End (IO2010, 7,5ects)
PO4: Materialization and Detailing (IO2050. 7,5ects)
BFP: Bachelor Final project (IO3900, 15ects)
Remark: the Delft Design Guide presents an overview; short descriptions of approaches and methods. For learning designers it is needed to study more into detail using references mentioned in the guide.

This book was written by two artist educators who teach digital art and design studio foundation classes. While teaching classes that take place in software laboratories, we noticed that many of our students expected to learn to use software, but gave little consideration to aesthetics or art and design history. A typical first day question is, "Are we going to learn Photoshop in this class?" This book is a mash-up of the Bauhaus Basic Course and open source software such as Inkscape, Gimp, Firefox, and Processing. We have taken some of the visual principles and exercises from the Bauhaus Basic Course and adapted them into exercises for these applications.

El presente artículo presenta los resultados de una investigación que analiza el nivel de calidad reflexiva de los profesores, en el marco de un programa innovador de formación docente que introduce la práctica reflexiva, mediada y gestionada a través de un portafolio digital. Aporta a la discusión sobre nuevos usos de un portafolio digital para mejorar los procesos de reflexión por parte del profesorado y sobre modelos alternativos de formación docente; analiza los diferentes niveles de reflexión de los participantes, e identifica los obstáculos para lograr niveles de mayor profundidad. La metodología de investigación adoptada ha sidoun estudio instrumental de caso, en el marco de un programa de formación del profesorado universitario. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que el proceso reflexivo contribuye a una percepción positiva sobre la mejora de su desempeño, la planificación de sus clases y una mejor interacción con los alumnos, y que el uso del portafolio digital ha sido bien valorado para el desarrollo del proceso reflexivo propuesto. Asimismo, se identifican carencias, sobre todo en relación con los niveles de profundidad de la reflexión docente. Por último, se presenta una propuesta de indicadores para impulsar y evaluar el desarrollo reflexivo, basada en los hallazgos del estudio.

This textbook has been designed to be an introductory training to the entry-level position, Physical Therapy Aide. As part of College of the Sequoias Physical Therapy Aide program, this textbook was used alongside hands-on lab training to train students to work as Physical Therapy Aides. It discusses some of the history and current context of Physical Therapy, provides instruction on common PT Aide job activities (like modalities and transfers), introduces general physiology, reviews commonly-used medical terminology, and, in an effort to embed necessary remediation for the PT Aide program, also includes effective career skills and habits, like business letter writing, resumes, effective communication skills, and appropriate workplace conduct.

Electrical and computer engineering students take this in the second semester of their freshman year, just before their first circuits course. Students electing to take this course have completed one semester of calculus, computer programming, chemistry, and humanities. Concurrently with this course, students take physics and a second semester of calculus, as well as a second semester in the humanities.

This textbook -- written by a group of select experts with a focus on different aspects of the design process, from creation to production -- addresses the many steps of creating and then producing physical, printed, or other imaged products that people interact with on a daily basis. It covers the concept that, while most modern graphic design is created on computers using design software, the ideas and concepts don’t stay on the computer. The ideas need to be completed in the computer software, then progress to an imaging (traditionally referred to as printing) process. Keywords are highlighted throughout and summarized in a Glossary at the end of the book, and each chapter includes exercises and suggested readings.
