From Restrooms to Classrooms: Universal Design
Universal Design is a concept dating back to the 1960's, primarily in the field of architecture. The major concept concerns the design implementation and usage of spaces in which individuals live their day-to-day life. While addressing major issues affecting persons with handicaps or disabilities, the purpose of Universal Design is to allow all people from infancy to old age and with a range of special abilities to conduct their lives in as normal of a way as possible. In our presentation we shall include approaches involving physical spaces as well as learning environments, hence the title "From Restrooms to Classrooms: Universal Design". Topics may range from implementing spaces such as restrooms to learning environments including classrooms and workplaces. Accompanying Professor Hagen will be two undergraduate research assistants, Makiah Tripp & Linda Fan. John W. Hagen Ph.D. is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan and conducts research in Universal Design.
