This paper reflects on the experience of delivering a module in Information Systems Design to postgraduate students. The module has been taught for a number of years but has recently been restructured around a novel systems development framework presented as a pattern language. This restructuring represents a move towards a "scaffolded" approach to delivering the module. We present evidence that this approach has improved both the students' technical skills and their confidence in applying these skills.
