2015 Education Across the Continuum: Innovating through Universal Design

2015 Education Across the Continuum logo

Higher education institutions and systems worldwide are in a period of extraordinary challenge and change. The drive to increase participation in higher education is often at odds with the need to encourage and develop all students to be technically proficient and yet creative, independent and socially aware thinkers that are engaged with the world outside of the campus walls.

The Centre for Excellence in Universal Design, with the support of the Technological University for Dublin (TU4D) initiative hosted a two day conference in November 2015 consisting of a series of workshops, keynote speakers, exhibitions and a 24 Hour Universal Design Hackathon.

You can find keynote speeches, the full conference agenda and conference papers on the Universal Design in Education Conference website.

The conference explored themes of:

  • Theme 1: Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • Theme 2: Educational Technology
  • Theme 3: UD and Healthcare
  • Theme 4: UD and Standards
  • Theme 5: UD in Product Design
  • Theme 6: UD in ICT
  • Theme 7: UD in Engineering
