In this article we focus on the co-creation of ideas. Through the use of conceptsfrom collaborative learning and communication theory we suggest a model that will enablethe cooperative nature of creative design tasks to emerge. Four objectives of the model arestated and elaborated on in the paper: that the model should be anchored in previousresearch; that it should allow for collaborative aspects of creative design to be accountedfor; that it should address the mechanisms by which new ideas are generated, embracedand cultivated during actual design; and that it should have a ﬁrm theoretical grounding.The model is also exempliﬁed by two test sessions where two student pairs perform a time-constrained design task. We hope that the model can play a role both as an educational toolto be used by students and a teacher in design education, but primarily as a model toanalyse students’ cooperative idea generation in conceptual design.
