Description

As we recognize the importance of global competency to a fashion student's education, we offer various opportunities for our students to be involved in international programs. Having several programs running simultaneously across the globe under one curriculum presented several challenges, such as discrepancies in learning outcomes, varied physical and emotional responses, and diverging acquired skillsets. Therefore, the purpose of the study is to assess learning outcomes for fashion design students, after studying away. Using online surveys, a total of 62 study away participants during academic year 2014-15 were invited, and 29 responses were collected (response rate = 46.7%), to find out where they studied away, and how prepared they felt regarding the list of knowledge/skills that are required as a senior design student. The findings from this study shed light on understanding our current students' perception of their learning outcomes after studying away, as well as their preparedness for the senior-level design coursework.
