Ed­u­ca­tion is chang­ing rapidly, both in con­tent and ped­a­gogy, with tech­nol­ogy be­ing the driver. Con­tent is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly tech­nol­ogy-fo­cused, as fab­rics, gar­ments and com­merce be­come dis­rupted by dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy.

The cur­ricu­lum has be­come flex­i­ble to ac­com­mo­date the chang­ing needs of stake­hold­ers. There is an in­creased fo­cus on is­sues such as ethics and sus­tain­abil­ity.

Class­rooms have be­come more global and col­lab­o­ra­tive, with tu­tors and stu­dents work­ing to­gether on the chal­lenges faced by the fash­ion in­dus­try. Class­rooms are also be­com­ing virtual—stu­dents from dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions can join in on lec­tures, which brings a new per­spec­tive to the in­ter­ac­tions.
