Abstract

Studies revealed numerous benefits that service learning offers both to students and to the organizations served. They include students developing a greater awareness of social problems and students becoming eager volunteers following class community service work. Student engagement in the learning materials is also increased by the community service work. The course was designed to help students understand how trend forecasts are created and employed by various professionals in the fashion industry to improve a firm’s competitiveness in the marketplace with a dual focus on both consumer and business aspects.
