Abstract

Competency-based training is a trend in the university context, as well as an effort to educate professionals capable of solving current and real world problems. Under this perspective, competencies are developed at the conceptual, attitudinal and procedural levels, interacting with environment socio-cultural factors. In this requirement the Institución Universitaria Pascual Bravo, based on experiences from other universities, worked on a learning strategy based on challenges through an event called Bootcamp #PascualChallenge, which allows students to discover and develop alternatives to improve specific situations in an interdisciplinary manner and thus train in generic skills. Likewise, in the event, a 3-day contest, Design Thinking elements were implemented to solve complex problems in a creative way, from systemic perspectives, in which a set of solar recharge systems for mobile devices were conceptually redesigned, these systems were in a critical functional and aesthetic state, due to the deterioration of their structures, technical faults and obsolescence. In this way, the Boot-camp #PascualChallenge event is proposed as a pedagogical alternative that enhances significant learning experiences in tune with the development of generic competencies, under a perspective of Challenge-Based Learning.
