Resumen

ALBENIZ, Javier; BARAJAS, Rosa; CARRILLO, Isabel  y  SAAVEDRA, Pilar. Design and Implementation of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) in the Subject of Chemistry to Engineering Students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.3, pp.11-17. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062009000300003.

The implementation of the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System) has been initially tested in the course “Fundamentals of Chemistry” with the aim of improving the teaching methodology and student assessments used in previous years. With this aim in mind, the number of lectures has been reduced and students’ participation encouraged using both individual tasks (problem solving and class discussions) and group work (cooperative actions). These changes have increased the workload for both student and faculty, but the achieved results indicate learning and attitudinal gains as the number of students approved increased in a 10% respect to previous years.

Palabras clave : university education; teaching strategies; cooperative actions; problem solving; chemistry.
