More than 30 international experts from theory and practice have been working on the future of the digital university at TEC de Monterrey in Mexico City from 13.11.-17.11.23. Therefore, project partners from Colombia, Spain, Mexico and Germany have met and are now driving forward the project’s diverse focus points. This project aims to improve institutional support for young and experienced academic staff in teaching in digital formats, the sharing of resources and training courses as well as the digitalization of university administration. For this, strategy development and effective structures are being strengthened. A particular focus of the project lies on diversity, as this must be a future-proof component in our work, especially in the development of modern digital concepts. In the DigiUGov project, this is not only done by single workshops, but is actively integrated into all work packages. In the coming months the resources developed will be available here on the project website, like our questionnaire on digital skills in teaching, which we invite you to try here:  

The two-year-long capacity building project is coordinated by the University of Potsdam and funded by the EU; the seven partner institutions are the Universidad Jaume I from Spain, the Universidad de Caldas, Asociación Colombiana de Universidades (ASCUN), the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (Seccional Bucaramanga), the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Cali), all from Colombia, the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (TEC) and the Universidad de Guadalajara, both from Mexico. This close collaboration promotes international structures and enables us to learn from each other – for a more flexible and diverse teaching, research and management.
