IV CertiDigital Face-to-Face Conference: Integrating CertiDigital in the university environment” – Tarragona

November 14, 2023

The Universitat Rovira i Virgili de Tarragona organizes the IV Face-to-Face Conference of CertiDigital “Integrating CertiDigital in the university environment” that will take place on December 11 and 12 at the Catalunya Campus. The event will be an important boost to the understanding and identification of the impact of the CertiDigital project on the educational, organisational and technological processes inherent to the functioning of our universities. In particular, the objectives of this edition are several and ambitious:

  • Deepen the value provided by CertiDigital, by extension digital credentials for learning to both citizens, educators and employers.
  • Promote a meeting point with organizations in close relationship with universities and that have the potential to integrate their applications and systems with CertiDigital.
  • Present the ways of integration with the CertiDigital Platform (public APIs).
  • Share ideas about the next important phases of the project such as Change Management and Training.
  • Discuss how to deal with the phases indicated above.
  • Presentation of the progress of the project.
  • As always, to promote and facilitate reflection, active participation and a culture of collaboration between the participating universities and their respective work teams.

We have created the following program that will allow us to host about 3-4 people per partner university and make effective progress in the aforementioned objectives.

We encourage you to register, book your agendas and participate actively, because in this session we will be commenting on very relevant issues for the successful achievement of the project.

The face-to-face sessions of the CertiDigital project are a key space for meeting, exchange and active collaboration between the various professional profiles of the 23 partner universities. The scheduled sessions allow to deepen the theoretical frameworks and the technologies involved, as well as to align visions, strategies and actions around the common objectives of the project.
