Sketch: The Communications Factory
The factory model is a co-curricular initiative aimed at enhancing student engagement and the student experience at The London College of Fashion. The factory model applies a range of playful approaches to short workshops around a pedagogic theme. A series of factories have been developed around a range of themes such as ‘the drawing factory’, ‘the ideas factory’ and ‘the communications factory’. The Communications Factory is aimed at putting students at ease with intercultural communication in a global classroom. Students sign up to series of self-selected playful approaches to intercultural communication that value and at times laugh at our differences with a view to building an enhanced sense of belonging within a learning community.
