Abstract

Most university-level educators maintain that developing a student’s critical thinking (CT) skills is extremely important. The way to accomplish that goal, however, is open to debate. Students aspiring to a career in fashion and technical design need analytical and CT skills in order to successfully contribute to their chosen field. Apparel design and construction classes are ideally suited for hands-on, active, problem-based learning in order to develop the skills as opposed to the traditional lecture format (McKeatchie, Pintrich, Lin, & Smith, 1987).
