Paper presented at the Higher Education in Transformation Conference, Dublin, 31st. May - 1st. April, 2015.


This paper outlines the first phase of a process of re-design strategy that was undertaken in an Irish higher education institution. The re-design strategy was undertaken prior to a merger of three autonomous higher education institutions in the Dublin area. The strategy undertaken comprised three main phases: identification and consideration of design criteria; short-listing and consideration of design options; and finally, the development and selection of the most appropriate design option. This paper focuses mainly on the first phase of the process undertaken: the identification and consideration of design criteria.
