Abstract: This document acts as a baseline for the participants of the Helsinki Workshop. In order to situate the tasks to be carried out during and after the workshop, this document describes other efforts at curriculum design for higher education in related subjects, thereby setting the stage for the methodology adopted by IDCnet. This is followed by a brief description of some of the current trends with regard to the teaching of design for all, in terms of learner background, targeted audiences, etc. This section also notes the connection between on line learning and DfA. The next part of the document attempts a taxonomy of types of knowledge and skills identified in taught courses, and indicates useful sources of material. It also lists two examples of curricula plans that influenced this section. The final section summarises the main points of the document and describes the next steps. An annex provides some terminology related to Design for All, as well as definitions of terms used in curricula.
