Become a recognised Master in Digital Inclusion whilst you work.
The MSc/PG dip Digital Inclusion at Middlesex University, UK examines how we can create a more inclusive society by demanding, designing and developing more inclusive information systems. It is the first course of its kind in Europe and was developed as part of an ambitious plan to increase the number of people who are professionally qualified to deliver practical and economic accessible solutions. The Digital Inclusion curriculum has been specially designed in collaboration with European experts in Design for All and Universal Design from 23 European countries and the qualification has been harmonised with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
The course consists of four taught modules focusing on awareness of user diversity, human rights, the regulatory framework, design methodology and accessible web design. Each module starts with a week of class-room based activities followed by eleven weeks of e-learning. Students get the chance to use on-line tools to communicate with their lecturers and fellow students while continuing to live and work from home – whether in the UK, Europe or beyond. The final research project module may be based on a realistic problem in the student’s workplace or identified by one of the charities or companies who have helped to support the development of this course.
