About the Author

Welcome to Journal 16. We bring you a substantial article from AHEAD CEO Dara Ryder on the exciting developments of a National Charter for Universal Design in Tertiary Education through the Universal Design Dialogue.  The UD momentum continues with work by colleagues in the sector, and we feature the work of the  John Kelly Award winners. We welcome contributions from the US and Europe who provide the bigger picture, together with good advice on designing and delivering hybrid events. You also have the opportunity to meet Ulreeka, the community dog in the Learning Hub at Dunboyne College of Further Education. I hope you enjoy this exciting edition which really showcases how inclusion for disabled students is gathering pace.
