Terry Yan’s study will explore the interests among university faculty and students in potential incorporation of virtual reality technology in apparel and merchandising curricula. Virtual reality features visualization, immersion, and interaction, and allows users, particularly apparel and merchandising students, to see the “reality” settings around the world (e.g. apparel factors in Vietnam; rivers polluted by chemicals dyes in India). The ultimate goal of the study is to promote transformative learning among university students in understanding clothing and sustainability.
