Abstract
Amongst the 21st Century skills that students should acquire during their educational trajectory are “information and technology” literacy. Because of the importance of the Textile and Clothing industry in Europe, special attention needs to be given to incorporating these skills in the curriculum of the students in this area. The European ICT-TEX (ICT in Textile and Clothing Higher Education and Business) project wants to contribute to this demand by developing curricula focussed on ICT. The ICT-TEX project is an Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance joining 12 European partners of universities (5), companies (4) and non-profit organisations (3) which are geographically spread over Europe. At the start of the project, a questionnaire was sent out to textile entrepreneurs and manufacturers to provide input for the gap analysis. These results were used to draw up the content of the courses under development. The syllabuses cover several areas of the textile and clothing industry: Design and Production of: Woven Fabrics; of Knitwear; of Technical and Smart Textiles; Finishing, Printing & Functionalisation and Apparel Design and Production. In total 16 courses have been developed and they are presented in a very user-friendly Moodle platform. The target group for whom the courses are developed are not only Bachelor students, but also teaching staff and employees already active in the textile and clothing industry who want to improve their digital skills. For each of these target groups, dedicated extra course material is provided. This material is available once you have registered on the platform, which is accessible through the project’s website. With establishing these syllabuses, the ICT-TEX project wants to give the opportunity to people from the textile and clothing industry to improve their digital skills.
