Description

A computer aided design (CAD) course for apparel with Lectra Designer (Lectra, 2015) software utilizes groups in design applications by connecting classroom education to required fundamental skills needed in the apparel production, merchandising and retail business. Many students have difficulty relating textbook theory to “real life” problems and applying critical thinking skills in the process. This course exposes students to Lectra industry based software (Lectra, 2015) in the product development process while partnering with a major discount retailer for an experiential group project. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) methods were executed in this course along with integration of an industry-based group project helping to increase students’ employability through stronger analytical skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
