How clothes have changed: connecting cultures and eras through the shared heritage of fashion (EN-CUR-611)

This Learning Scenario has been designed to make students reflect on the changes fashion has suffered in the last ten decades. They will be given the opportunity to discover and analyze how certain shared heritage in fashion among cultures has evolved and developed over time. In the activities, they will do research about it and compare it in different decades and they will do a final-task project related to textile branding. They will learn that fashion is about translating self-esteem into a personal style and that clothes have a life cycle that is repeated over time. 

This learning scenario has been developed during the “Digital Education with Cultural Heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
