Suitability of Advanced Tools Applied to Engineering Courses
Technical grade studies teaching has always been a complex process. Traditionally, a big importance has been given
to knowledge transmission. Nowadays, especially since the implementation of European Higher Education Area,
understanding of the different concepts is achieving more and more importance, in contrast with traditional methods. New
tools and techniques should be oriented to guaranty this goal, progressively replacing the classic “chalk-and-talk” with new
activities to develop inside and outside the classrooms. In this communication a series of new tools applied to engineering
courses are presented. Case of use of these techniques are exposed too. General impression after applying these tools are better
every academic year, trying to increase the number of tools used and their impact in the learning process.
