Erasmus + Capacity Building in Higher Education “Digital Transformation in the Western Balkans Education - DIGITCRESHE”

DIGITCRESHE is a Capacity Building Project in Higher Education financed by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, being implemented for the period January 2023 – January 2025.

The project aims to improve the quality of the Higher Education programmes for the Creative Industries in the Western Balkan countries to make students more satisfied with the skills they acquired, to ensure that graduates are more skilled and competitive on the labour market and therefore achieving higher employment rates. This will be achieved through a digital transformation process that takes advantage of active learning methodologies and innovative tools. The project will assess the existing needs in HEI programmes for the CCS, will design, develop and/or adapt curricula, courses, learning materials and implement different learning and collaboration activities for teachers, postgraduates, and graduates.
