CIDR was well represented at last week’s INCLUDE 2015 “Disruptive Inclusive” conference. Jeanne-Louise Moys co-presented a poster with Christina Duckett on Breaking down Barriers. Breaking down Barriers is the University’s newly-fledged cross-disciplinary project on embedding inclusive design in our curricula.
Jeanne-Louise, and our PhD-researchers Andrew Barker and Marie Leahy, attended a range of exciting workshops at INCLUDE. Particular highlights were Sam Waller and Joy Goodman-Deane’s (University of Cambridge) workshop on new tools for measuring inclusivity in printed and digital design and Andrew Payne’s (Indiana State University) temporary tactile mapping workshop. Jeanne-Louise will be drawing on the tools used in these sessions to innovate new ways of engaging with inclusive design in our undergraduate teaching.
