Irish Network: Universal Design for Learning and Assistive Technology

DATE / TIME 24/06/2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



All those working within vocational rehabilitation on the island of Ireland or with links to Irish VR are welcome to join us for our network meeting. This month we have a presentation from Trevor Boland on Universal Design for Learning and Assistive Technology: Inclusion is happening is Education now so how can we all play a part in this change?

Trevor Boland is the Digital and eLearning Officer in AHEAD and has worked for almost 20 years in Education. He joined the AHEAD family a year ago and, in that time, he has been part of the National UDL Badge rollout in 2020. He has brought knowledge from his previous role of Assistive Technology Officer that has informed the AT recourse in AHEAD called ‘AT Hive’ that advocates more AT awareness in Education and Employment. In AHEAD he delivers Assistive Tech workshops, supports the positive message of UDL and how it addresses issues of inclusion as well as promotes accessibility awareness. UDL, Assistive Tech and Accessibility all overlap and are key to removing barriers and enabling all to participate to their fullest extent.
