UBITECH participates at the kick-off meeting of the LivAI Action on making Adult Education lively through Artificial Intelligence

UBITECH participated at the kick-off meeting hosted by Universitat Jaume I de Castellón (UJI) in Castellon de la Plana, Spain (January 16-17, 2023) of the LivAI “Cooperation Partnerships in Adult Education” Action (KA220-ADU), officially started on November 1st, 2022. The project is funded by European Commission under Erasmus+ programme (Grant Agreement No. KA220-ADU-D54476C0) and spans on the period November 2022 – October 2024. LivAI provides knowledge and skills as well as a certification framework that will standardise those obtained competences and reaching a small but meaningful progress towards enhancing the quality assurance in adult education, constructing a digital platform that allows the monitoring and evaluation (award certification scheme) of the three main target groups: adult educators, adult education institutions and adult learners. The complete framework provides practical guidance for digital transformation of the adult learning centres, training framework for high quality digital learning pathways and a certification mechanism that will ensure high quality standards in a digital era, incorporating the notion of ethical AI and Big Data into the level of adult education.
