The Role of Museum Exhibits in Teaching Textile ScienceJournal of Family and Consumer Sciences
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractA constant challenge for family and consumer sciences (FCS) educators, particularly those in more scientific-based courses, is keeping students interested in course material and ensuring active participation (Ramey-Gassert, Walberg, & Walberg, 1994). The concept of learning outside of the traditional, formal classroom setting is an important component of FCS educational pedagogy. Methods of learning beyond the FCS classroom include visiting museums, accessing archives—both in person and virtually—and participating in field studies (Roehl, 2013).
