The Alma Mater University Institute is organizing a Technical Conference dedicated to the future of university assessment

On Friday, May 3, 2024, a Technical Conference was held in the Rector Noguero Room of the eUniv, dedicated specifically to the problems experienced by the evaluation systems of universities as a result of the introduction of AI to all the levels.

At the Conference several speakers presented the experiences of a series of different university centers: Aleix Dorca (University of Andorra), Marc B. Escolà (University Europea IMF), Rosa M. Gil (University of Lleida), Jordi Garcia (University of Girona), Francisco J. Guillén (Santa Clara University of California), Maria Pupysheva (Moscow State University of Languages), Xavier Sales (Vic-Central University of Catalonia), and David Tanganelli (International University of Catalonia). These experiences made it possible to consider the problem from a set of different academic disciplines, such as engineering, economics, law, tourism, psychology, humanities, business and philology.

Institutional representatives were also present at the Conference, such as the Director of Higher Education of the Government of Andorra, Xavier Campuzano, and the Director of the Access Office at the University of the Generalitat of Catalonia, in addition to representatives academics, such as the chancellor of Carlemany University, Helena Prieto, and the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lleida, Joan J. Busqueta.

The president of the Alma Mater University Institute, Eladi Llop, announced that the magnitude of the AI challenge requires a permanent inter-university cooperative effort, which is why he announced a second Technical Conference, already dedicated to directly discussing the different technical and regulatory proposals, which must allow universities to continue to assure society of their ability to assess students and thus accredit their degrees.
