            I am hoping that you or your colleagues would be 
            interested in an update on 'design for all' and 
            eAccessibility issues. This is the first time we have 
            offered a summer school course - which we hope will be 
            useful and of interest to colleagues looking for 
            professional development as well as current and 
      recent students.
            The attachment gives full details of the syllabus. Gill 
            Whitney who is leading the course is Chair of the 
            European Design-for-all and Assistive Technology 
            Standardisation Co-ordination Group (DATSCG) and Centre 
            Head of Collaborative International Research Centre for 
            Universal Access (CIRCUA) at Middlesex University.

            Design for All in ICT
            Middlesex University Summer School 2006
            Do you or your colleagues want to know how to design 
            software, hardware and web systems that are accessible 
            for all? The increasing age of the population and the 
            increasing use of design for all legislation and 
            standardisation mean that you need to.
            •	This Summer School course is intended for all ICT 
            designers, developers and managers. It will provide 
            knowledge of the need for electronic systems to be 
            designed in an accessible way, an understanding of the 
            needs of older and disabled people with respect to 
            electronic equipment and knowledge of the legislation and 
            standardisation around the world that requires software, 
            hardware and electronic systems to be designed in an 
            accessible way.
            •	This course will be taught by members of the 
            Collaborative International Research Centre for Universal
