Abstract

Theories about experiential learning and expert performance place reflection as a vital mechanism which operates at different levels according to whether we are responding to a situation as it unfolds or critically reviewing past events to make sense of what occurred. Video recordings already play a useful role in reviewing events in many situations. Recently it has become practical to edit digital video footage using mass market, easy to use software, this has opened up new opportunities for amateur production of video stories. We describe work carried out at the Technical University Delft with small teams of industrial design students on the point of entering professional practice in which the potential of video story-making for supporting the sort of critical reflection necessary to evaluate design experience was explored. We conclude that the process of story construction presents rich opportunities for making sense of design education and experiences of design practice.
