Project Start & End:

The Erasmus Mundus Association was excited to be a full partner in the GO-DIJIP project "Integrating Digital Collaborative Environments into Joint Programmes". EMA contributed with our large network of students and alumni and supported Communication and Dissemination Activities.
What was the GO-DIJIP Project?
EMA was part of the GO-DIJIP, Key Action 2 project on “Integrating Digital Collaborative Environments into Joint Programmes”. This two-year project s coordinated by the University of Padua – Padova, Italy. University of Bergen, AgroParisTech, UNICollaboration, and EMA were the full project partners.
Representatives from the European Association for International Education (EAIE), Coimbra Group, ARQUS European University Alliance and the Association for the Promotion and the Development of Joint International Programmes in higher education (ProDeJIP) were among the Associate Project Partners.
This Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project focused on the introduction of digital elements in Joint Programmes, and counted on our EMA members, students and alumni to contribute!
GO-DIJIP aimed to develop a digitalized, innovative, collaborative and quality-oriented Higher Education, providing instruments to sustainably mainstream new virtual teaching and learning forms.
Within the project, the GO-DIJIP AMPLIFIER Platform was developed, intended as an open-access, collaborative platform designed to expose and amplify sustainable practices of digital teaching, learning and assessment as well as intercultural and networking activities within Joint Programmes.
The GO-DIJIP project is over, but thanks to the outstanding results of this project, the University of Padua will continue to organise GO-DIJIP course editions. EMA will be a part of them, and we will keep you posted on EMA Social media about future actions related to this course.
Congratulations to the three EMAzing Project Coordinators: Katharina F Heil, Cristina Martinez Tapia & Manasseh Anand who did a great job coordinating this project and even receiving compliments from the other partners who considered the students’/alumni’s contribution as one of the most relevant components of this project.
Some final words from the Project Coordinators:
This 2 years project was a challenge and at the same time a great opportunity to learn new things, develop new skills but most importantly to share time and moments with the Go-Dijip Dream team, amazing human beings that end up becoming good friends! With no doubt, EMA is where volunteering transforms your life. Katha, Cris, Manasseh
