Who should attend:

  • Key representatives of design education in Ireland

Why attend: Be at the front of learning about research and standards projects that are developing the foundations for promoting Universal Design (UD) in Irish education. Irish graduates educated in UD will improve products, services and environments so that they can be used, understood and enjoyed by all people regardless of their age, size, abilities or disabilities. The Flash Conference will show you how UD is being introduced at 2nd level, being integrated at 3rd level and in CPD. The UD Challenge 2011 will demonstrate UD being applied by designers and students in a fun and informative competition.
