Face-to-face education and training have been hit hard by the COVID19¬†pandemic.¬†Schools and study centers offering only face-to-face training have had to readjust and prepare their classrooms to be able to teach through the Internet.
During the confinement, the classes have been conducted with video-conference platforms that have allowed the completion of the academic year in primary education, secondary, university and postgraduate or programmes and masters.
With this new academic year, many studies will be delivered in a semi-face-to-face way to avoid crowding in classrooms and the possible spread of the virus. Classrooms should be equipped with an optimal audio-visual system with a good camera and recording equipment to allow students in their homes to see and hear the teachers lesson correctly.
This situation also affects fashion design schools.¬†Face-to-face training has had to be adapted in order to comply with the health measures recommended by the authorities.¬†In this type of study, as in many others, the process of developing face-to-face practices is a matter of concern because theoretical training can be received via the Internet, but the practical implementation of this theory must be done in person in most subjects.
Motivation in fashion design schools
Alongside is the task of education professionals to maintain the motivation of students.¬†We know that face-to-face training has a number of conditions and features that can never be supplied by online training.¬†From the physical relationship between the teacher and the student, to the gestural activity of the people present during their verbal and non-verbal communication.
Fashion design schools must work on the innovation of subjects such as patronage or clothing.¬†Students will miss being able to use the materials and machinery available at the school.¬†But with steam and effort they will readjust while they await the end of the pandemic.¬†Being a fashion designer is at the fingertips of anyone motivated, talented and passionate.
