AHEAD – Journey to Oz: Travelling together towards inclusive education

Croke Park, Wednesday 20th March - Thursday 21st March 2019

Journey to Oz – Travelling together towards inclusive education.

Students and staff in our further and higher education system are on significant journeys – students are travelling the road to graduation and staff are navigating the move towards mainstreamed inclusion on campus. Much like in Oz, they find that the journey itself is more important than the final destination and they find what they crave within them.

This international conference will ask:

  • How can our college services respond to an increasingly diverse student population and help them to release the potential within as they travel the yellow brick road towards graduation?
  • How can our teachers and academics, recognising the journey that they themselves are on, adapt their practice in our evolving inclusive institutions and like Dorothy, be the catalyst our diverse students need to help them realise their aspirations?
  • How do our Disability Service Staff share their knowledge, expertise and best practice with academics and wider student services to help them to ‘find their way home' in this changing landscape?

This conference is for teaching staff, student services staff and all others in the campus infrastructure interested in an inclusive approach. If students are your concern, then there's something here for you!

The Irish Potato Famine

Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2.

The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word 'Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the 'Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name 'Great Hunger' to describe this period of ma
