CPI Learning in Clothing Thermal Computational Design
This paper proposes a CPI (conceptual-procedural-integrative) learning method for textiles and clothing university students to learn the computational design for clothing thermal functions and performance on knowledge, skills and application levels. First, the CPI learning method is discussed. Second, three proposed learning approaches (virtual trial learning, 3M learning, F/P-oriented design learning) on knowledge, skills and application in clothing thermal computational design are described. Third, the paper describes a course design and user study of a one-semester university apparel functional design course. The data of a pre-post study were collected. The results showed that the students achieved significant improvement in theoretical academic content on knowledge, skills and application.
