Abstract

In this case study, we present a collaborative interdisciplinary trend research and forecasting course experience supported by an open access, online textbook collaboratively written by the instructors and offered by two Research One higher education institutions (https://open.lib.umn.edu/communicatingfashion/) . The textbook published by an academic library includes fashion design content as a part of a larger design framework covering many fields of design. The book provides integrated trend challenge activities that were completed individually and clickable links to up-to-date examples from the Internet (text, image, video). The textbook presents activities and content associated with other digital platforms such WGSN, Berg Fashion Library, videos of trend forecasting experts, open-access crowdsourced trend data and recorded webinars and lectures.

Keywords: Open Access, Online Collaboration, Textbook, Learning Resource, Trend Research
