Generating Decision-Making Hypotheses: An Exercise in Critical Thinking to Select Appropriate Slopers for Flat Patternmaking Bodice DesignsInternational Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings
DescriptionThe innovative strategy was to introduce students to the concept of generating decision-making hypotheses for flat patternmaking. This would teach students a method of critical thinking to utilize when deciding the appropriate slopers to use in creating basic or original garments. The concept of generating decision-making hypotheses was introduced to students first with a brief explanation and using a general example. Next student were given a context specific example. Then students were required to practice generating their own personal hypotheses for patternmaking. The outcomes were students felt that generating decision-making hypotheses helped them to think more critically about their patternmaking and the ideas they had for future projects.
