This year’s annual international AHEAD conference will take place in Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin on March 13th & 14th 2017.

This Universal Design for Learning (UDL) conference, will explore why UDL is for you. If you, as an educator or support staff member, are working with a very diverse student population, then how do you understand their requirements and respond to them in your practice? You have to anticipate the unique learning needs of millennial students, who are tech savvy and have expectations of successful careers in a changing world. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework of flexible design in education that supports you in maintaining robust standards while connecting with a diverse range of students, including those with disabilities, in a flexible and innovative way that keeps you ahead of the game.

This international universal design for learning (UDL) event run by AHEAD in co-operation with the LINK network will discuss the ‘why’ of UDL in further and higher education and feature 2 days of presentations and interactions in other innovative formats. Learn the ropes of UDL, hear about the latest research in inclusive education, network with professionals from across the globe and have your say in the beautiful Irish capital city of Dublin.
