The Educational Tools are made up of three tools: the Tuning Document, Teacher's Toolkit and Learning Units, that when combined provide guidelines for higher education institutions in the European Higher Education Area for developing MA curricula in the field of fashion-tech design.
The Tuning Document aims to form a basis for education in the field of fashion-tech design. Furthermore, by responding to a market and industry need for hybrid professionals, as identified in the Benchmarking Report, the document will establish the interdisciplinary education within the field. The Fashion-Tech Design Tuning Document is available and free to use for all higher education institutions to (re-)design, develop, implement, evaluate and enhance quality of their study programmes focusing on educating and preparing professionals for the fashion-tech market.

The pedagogic methods and approaches that make up the Teacher's Toolkit, have been chosen due to their relevance to teaching and learning in the interdisciplinary field of fashion-tech. The toolkit consists of 10 different methods and approaches, that are designed in a modular way, enabling to mix and match to create high-qualitative learning units. The tools contain a short description, a brief, a facilitator guide, and if applicable, presentations and hand-outs that can be customised. Most tools can be mixed and matched with each other, with recommendations provided under each tool.

The topics defined within the 18 learning units provide guidelines for relevant knowledge and skills to be acquired by future hybrid professionals needed in the fashion-tech industry. The units can be used as they are, or adapted as necessary into existing or new fashion-tech curricula.

The tools have been tested through 5 cross-disciplinary and transnational workshops held by the project. The workshops were not only the key activities to interact and gain feedback/learn from the learners participating in the project, but also aimed to ensure that the courses developed are relevant and transferable to different fields of fashion-tech, different institutions and different regions, ensuring the project results are truly adjustable and sustainable.
