Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a teaching experience developed in the Polytechnic University of Cartagena and, more specifically, in the subject of Mathematical Methods Applied to Civil Engineering, that belongs to the Master Degree of Paths, Channels and Ports. Our classes were a mix between the traditional system and the new educational system. Moreover, we tried to adapt the evaluation process to the new European Framework for Higher Education. We have used videos developed by us and by students in our classes. We have noticed that the interest and motivation in class has grown. Also the grades have improved. We did a survey during this academic year and the results were strongly positive for both students and teachers.
