DESIGN IN #DEAFCULTURE
During the session, multidisciplinary designer and lecturer Padraic Lynch will tell the story of how the first 15 deaf sign language teachers in Northern Ireland developed their teaching skills to a high level through a multidisciplinary design process, creating 4 educational design innovations. With the help of the course team and interpreters, his role as creative director was to encourage collaboration and allow the groups to “listen, create and deliver”.
Padraic believes that multidisciplinary designers are uniquely positioned to deliver outcomes on UX design projects and this presentation will highlight how graphic design for print and screen, illustration, moving image, animation, AR, textile/tactile design and design entrepreneurship have brought this standard TEL (technology enhanced learning) module to a whole new level.
Padraig is focused on improving the student experience through the development of innovative and collaborative teaching and learning methods. He is a practicing multidisciplinary designer with specialisms in graphic design, UX, moving image and digital storytelling.
