Fostering Self-Directed Learners through Competitions
Lafrenz, Lu Ann; Murray, Bernadine
College Quarterly, v8 n3 Sum 2005
Educational programs are continually seeking ways to encourage students' independence, personal growth, and self-directed learning. Graduates should enter the fashion industry with the ability to engage in lifelong learning in order to ensure competence in professional practice. Competition experiences help students to achieve these goals. The results of the study suggest that students perceived they developed high skill levels as self-directed learners and recognized the benefits from entering design competitions.
