Students often have difficulty generating multiple creative ideas for design problems. “Design
Heuristics” is an empirically derived and validated approach to product design ideation. Our
research has shown that concepts created by engineering students who used Design Heuristics
were more complex and creative designs. This workshop will include a review of relevant
research on idea generation along with an introduction to this research-grounded creativity tool.
Participants will practice using the Design Heuristics to generate concepts for design tasks and
discuss ways to implement it effectively in their classrooms.
