A new Master of Design (MDes) in Inclusive Design from OCADU in Toronto has been announced. More information at the OCADU website.

Recognizing the high level of demonstrated need and demand for designers and developers with specialized knowledge in inclusive design principles and practices, both in Canada and abroad, OCAD University is launching an innovative new graduate program in Inclusive Design. Inclusive Design is design that is inclusive of the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of human difference.
The focus of the Master of Design (MDes) in Inclusive Design will be on building expertise in inclusive digital media and information and communication technologies (ICT) and practices, with gradual expansion to incorporate larger components of industrial and environmental design, graphic communication and relevant arts/design areas with connection to digital technologies and ICT systems.
This innovative program will produce graduates with the capacity to form, lead and sustain a much-needed community of expertise on digital inclusion, which will span multiple sectors. Graduates will apply their studies in all sectors that engage digital media and ICT systems, including government and education sectors, digital industries, entertainment, arts, culture, health, communication design, wayfinding, architectural systems design, mobile and interactive industries and many others.
The MDes in Inclusive Design is a low residency two-year program with an executive style delivery format to accommodate the needs of working professionals and international students.
