Abstract
The primary objective of this thesis is to evaluate the extent to which priming packages overcome the experiential gap between student designers and pre-determined end users, with the ultimate outcome of improving the quality of concepts generated by the students to address the needs of the end users. This thesis was divided into two parts: 1) development of the general priming package structure/content and evaluation tools to grade the concepts on their adherence to the needs of stakeholders, and 2) an assessment of concepts generated by teams with and without access to the second-iteration priming package, with refinement based on feedback collected during the preliminary trials.
