Typography students ‘Breaking down Barriers’ using TEL

Breaking down Barriers‘ – the cross-disciplinary TLDF-funded project committed to embedding inclusivity within curricula of built environment professional education (BEPE), graphic communication and beyond – has kicked off the academic year with a workshop in inclusive design with the new Part 1 Typography students. Students studying the BA Graphic Communication Integrated Design Methods module engaged with the new SEE-IT sight exclusive prototype for assessing visual inclusion/exclusion (currently being developed by the University of Cambridge as a new addition to their inclusive design toolkit). Working in pairs, they measured visual inclusion of typographic elements in business cards, leaflets and mobile apps.
