Fostering Student Engagement: Participatory and Experiential Pedagogy for 3D Technology Integration



School of Fashion, Ryerson University, Toronto ON, Canada


Finding new ways of engagement for students with course material is a reoccurring goal among educators. Technological advancement and innovation in the apparel industry provides students with the opportunity to conduct contemporary research while allowing experimentation. The purpose of this paper is to examine the outcome of a student directed 3D body-scanning project - the focus of which was to conduct scan sessions with participants from the Faculty of Communication and Design at Ryerson University. Additionally, this paper examines how the successful integration of technology in the classroom is dependent on the pedagogical principles applied in the creation, development and implementation of course content.
