Learning in design is a phenomenon observed in design practice. Yet there is no comprehensive model or theory that explains the phenomenon and serves as a basis upon which design support systems are developed. This paper describes the development of a novel model of learning in design, LinD, that seeks to formalise the nature of learning in design. The model features formalisms for describing the cognitive activities of design and learning and three links that explain the interactions between these activities; these links being the epistemic, teleological and temporal links.
