Purpose – The purpose of this study was to provide more information about the effectiveness of the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) approach in textiles and apparel by applying it to a semesterlong sustainability course.
Design/methodology/approach – A University-level course was re-designed using the ESD concepts. The course was taught from a consumer viewpoint using the product lifecycle as a focus, so the information was applicable to students′ lives and multiple consumer products. Quantitative results of a pre- and post-test taken by students measured changes in knowledge, attitudes and behavior related to sustainability. Qualitative data from open-ended questions collected student feedback on instructional strategies.
Findings – A significant change in knowledge and attitudes were observed on the post-test. Students
perceived assignments that required critical thinking, research and related to their lives as the most beneficial.
Practical implications – The ESD approach changed student knowledge and attitudes to be more
sustainable. Assignments that included real world examples had the most impact on pro-environmental
attitudes and support the use of a student-centered pedagogy.
Originality/value – This study is based on a semester-long sustainability course designed with ESD,
while many existing studies are based on a single intervention or lesson. The results of this study add to the
body of ESD literature in the textile and apparel area and are applicable to other disciplines.
