Event Details

Title: Let’s Bring the Elephant into the Room! - Reshaping the inclusive environment in further & higher education - AHEAD Conference 2018

When: March 20th & 21st 2018

Where: Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin

You know the old phrase ‘the elephant in the room’? ...the big thing staring everyone in the face that nobody finds it easy to talk about?

As we change our focus from an add-on individual model of disability support towards a more inclusive cross-campus approach, this conference will explore the challenges of this strategic move and examine best practice approaches on the institution, faculty and student support levels. How can we ensure that we manage the transition to a more inclusive campus while maintaining support services which remain an essential part of a successful college experience for many students with disabilities? How will the roles of faculty and support staff evolve to meet the demands of a universally designed learning environment? How can we ensure that non-classroom activities like social experiences, work placement and study abroad are also universally designed?

This conference aims to bring the elephants into the room and talk about them.
