Agreement Signed Between ICDL Americas and the Association of Universities of Latin America and the Caribbean for Integration
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed on 10 March between the Association of Universities of Latin America and the Caribbean for Integration (AUALCPI) and ICDL Americas in Bogota. The agreement will see digital skills further promoted and developed in Latin America and the Caribbean to strengthen skills for higher education and the workplace.
The organisations agreed on the need to strengthen the infrastructure and skills around new technologies in relation to training people and institutions in digital competences at all levels, which requires the key support of higher education institutions as educators of globally-qualified citizens.
For AUALCPI member institutions, the Memorandum includes a number of benefits, including being able to become ICDL Accredited Test Centres.
ICDL Americas will be attending the 8th AUALCPI Seminar for Latin American and the Caribbean Integration: “Integration, Innovation and Sustainable Development”, within the Higher Education Innovation and Internationalization Forum to be held in Virtual Educa in Puerto Rico next June. The topic to be presented will be “Inclusion and digital skills for development, innovation and productivity: Competences for the 21st century”.
