University subject profile: fashion and textiles | Education

Estelle Sidler

What you’ll learn
Fashion students are taught to understand the construction of clothing. This means practising drawing, pattern-cutting and tailoring, and developing an understanding of shape and colour. Lecturers will also help you build a knowledge of the industry. You’ll gain insight into how the fashion world functions commercially, and the professional qualities needed to work in the sector.

Textile degrees focus on the design of the cloth used for clothes and interiors: think materials, textures, colours, patterns. Undergrads will have access to workshops and modern technologies, such as image manipulation software and digital embroidery machines. Much like fashion students, you’ll be taught the history of textile design.

How you’ll learn
Aside from honing practical skills required to work with various materials and techniques, you’ll carry out visual research and generate original ideas. You’ll be expected to evaluate and reflect critically on your work, placing it in a historical and

Open-book exams: DU to ask students to bring answer sheets, gadgets – education

Estelle Sidler

New Delhi:

To ensure minimum contact in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, Delhi University will ask students to get their own sheets of paper to write answers during the offline open-book exams (OBE) scheduled from September 14. The university will also allow undergraduate and postgraduate students to take electronic gadgets such as cellphones, laptops or tablets to the examination halls.

The university had on Wednesday filed an affidavit in the Delhi High Court, saying it would conduct a second phase of open-book exams for students, who did not appear in the first phase held from August 10 to August 31, in both the online and offline (physical test at the university centre) mode.

It said students can take the exams at the examination centre in Delhi or online (if they cannot travel due to the pandemic).

Mentioning the norms that would be followed during the physical exams, the university in

    The Technology, Innovation, and Education (TIE) Program nurtures creative leaders in education toward researching and designing new technologies and media that promote powerful teaching and engaged learning.

    TIE asks you to consider, “Who are the users, and what educational challenges are they grappling with?” — choosing the medium or technology that delivers the most effective learning experience for your specific goal. Technology is the means, not the mission, for harnessing innovation and creativity to improve educational outcomes for all learners.

    Whether it’s a course on designing cutting-edge technologies, a practicum on large-scale distance learning, or a course on evaluating the impact of educational apps, we concentrate on the cognitive, affective, and social dimensions of learning, not on the bit rate.

    —Nick Cote for Education Week

    Technology is everywhere in education: Public schools in the United States now provide at least one computer for every five students. They spend more than $3 billion per year on digital content. Led by the federal government, the country is in the midst of a massive effort to make affordable high-speed Internet and free online teaching resources available to even the most rural and remote schools. And in 2015-16, for the first time, more state standardized tests for the elementary and middle grades will be administered via technology than by paper and pencil.

    To keep up with what’s changing (and what isn’t), observers must know where to look.

    There’s the booming ed-tech industry, with corporate titans and small startups alike vying

    22 Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in Education

    Estelle Sidler

    The modern classroom has taken several steps forward in its evolution of the learning environment in the past 25 years. Many of the benefits that we have seen in this setting are due to the introduction of new technology options for students. Instead of having a single computer for a class to use or a laboratory environment for the entire school placed in one room, we can now help students learn at their table or desk with items issued to them directly.

    Our development of the Internet since 1989 has helped us to include more technological access to information in the modern classroom as well. If you grew up as an 80’s kid, then you had the A/V cart come into your class to watch educational videos and maybe have a snack. Now students get to play interactive learning games, compete against other students, and have their educational statistics tracked
