Description

Retail Math and Apparel Design courses are essential components to merchandising and product development majors. Several courses require students to use Excel or Illustrator programs. These are basic tools for teaching and learning math and design. Some students think that everything about these programs must be taught in class. At the same time, instructors may think that their job is to teach concepts, rather than software techniques. A gap in technology between students and instructors also exists in today’s higher education, hindering the true potential of student learning outcomes. In this light, we explored the attitudes of students and instructors for teaching and learning responsibilities using Excel and Illustrator as examples.
