Conference paper


The implementation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) requires working matters and projects transversally in the different subjects. The methodology applied so far has not provided the desired learning outcomes; after a research and training carried out by the professors of both subjects, several changes to the methodology will be implemented next year. PBL is a good methodology to break the vicious cycle of the general principles about teaching and to experiment with educational innovation in order to engage the students in their own learning process.
