Description

Many first year university fashion design students learning apparel pattern drafting (APD) endure a steep learning curve. An Active Learning approach, using the Think-Pair-Share (TPS) strategy may facilitate a more engaging and productive learning environment. There is a lack of literature that investigates the application of active learning in fashion design education. This study examined whether TPS activities could successfully engage students, facilitate learning, and contribute to a positive classroom experience in a beginner-level APD course.
