The DigiCulture Erasmus+ project creates the Digital Skills for Creative Industries online courses available in the UniCampus Virtual Learning Hub aimed at low-skilled and at-risk adults, the Digital Skills e-assessment tool and Open Badges for Digital Skills. Together they will provide important new opportunities for low-skilled adults to access knowledge, gain new digital skills and intercultural competences and improve their chances of finding employment or performing better in their current employment.
A discussion on Twitter followed the webinar – #EDENChat – a series of discussions on Twitter, initiated by the Steering Committee of EDEN – NAP – Network of academics and professionals. These are mediated by members of the NAP community and last about an hour. Anyone can join and contribute to the discussions, presented after a format of questions – answers format, and focuses on current issues in the distance, open and e-learning.
The project addresses a gap in the education of creative and cultural industries (IC), which emphasizes the use of new digital technologies in the context in which entrepreneurs (project management) and recent graduates and employees do not have essential skills. The presenters introduced the 13 short online courses, which are soon ready to launch and outlined how they can be used both in the current pandemic situation and in the future to improve the relevant digital skills of adults.
The presentation was a dynamic one, the presenters actively answering the questions received from the 130 participants.
The DigiCulture – ‘Improving the Digital Competences and Social Inclusion of Adults in Creative Industries’ Erasmus + project partners are from universities, adult training and cultural sector from Romania, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Lithuania, UK and Ireland.
