DENTON, H.G., 2005. Effective student industrial designers: identifying formative factors. IN: Norman, Spendlove and Grove (eds), Inspire and Educate: DATA International Research Conference 2005, Sheffield Hallam University

unique to individuals. This paper presents work done to start unpicking these
factors and relationships.
