In October 2001 the Open University introduces a new modular programme for initial teacher training for secondary teaching.

All include practical and theoretical activities for readers to undertake and questions for them to answer. This book has four sections covering: 1. Starting to design 2. Designing 3. Design for manufacture 4. Evaluating designs. These cover: an introduction to design, design briefs, consumer research, product specification and product design, aesthetic and ergonomics, creativity in design, product development and manufacture and issues to do with 'green' design.
