Abstract

The development of a student’s skills during design education partly depends on the amount of selfconfidence. Optimizing the speed and level of growth can be done by influencing factors related to self-confidence that students have to cope with throughout their studies. Six main factors can be distinguished and have been explored in order to discover how teachers can improve sketching education. Several methods of improving sketching courses have been developed, tested and described based on these factors. Experience showed that by positively influencing self-confidence during courses, skills develop faster and to a higher level. Especially optimisations based on the field of reference factor rendered good results in our practice. Being aware of the possible influences which a teacher can have on the development of the six factors that influence these can make a noticeable difference.
