EduSeries is a new suite of tools and resources designed to support university tutors and course leaders in teaching their students about the significant environmental impacts of materials, the commercially-available sustainable material alternatives and emerging innovations.
The EduSeries created by The Sustainable Angle seeks to inform and educate on the place of specific fibre categories in a preferred materials mix, and their important place in reshaping and creating a responsible, sustainable and restorative fashion industry.
Materials play a critical role in building a fashion industry that places people and planet as priorities, and in creating equitable economic systems that replace current unsustainable, polluting and waste generating models. The EduSeries draws upon our teaching experiences, to support a re-imagined fashion industry where creativity and designing for sustainability contributes positively, showing how that fashion can be a vehicle for change.
The Sustainable Angle’s Fibre Categories EduSeries delivers a ‘plug and play’ solution that can be easily adapted to lecture theatre and/or workshop delivery for use by academics with some sustainability knowledge of fibres, or to support and enhance course leaders’ and lecturers existing teaching. Supporting content for each module has been designed to resonate with the learning experience, both within a teaching scenario, and as reference material with relevance to the professional context post graduation.
The series is supported by a directory of commercially available qualities from our Future Fabrics Virtual Expo.
The EduSeries is available in multiple formats, for easy integration into various teaching styles and scenarios, providing lecturers and academics with maximum autonomy for integration into existing course structure.
