Abstract

This paper presents an innovative experience applying PBL methodology simultaneously to eight different subjects in a Master's Degree on Technology for Human Development of the Technical University of Madrid run by the Innovation and Technology for Development Centre (itdUPM). Students are encouraged to work on a real project considering multidisciplinary aspects but always working on the same project, in real and developing context, demanding intense and critical coordination between professors. During the experience, the following competencies are strengthened: communication, team working and ability to analyse different socio-technical alternative based on economic, social and environmental aspects. The paper presents methodology, assessments, results, difficulties found and new challenges, as an example for potential replicability in other universities
