  • Abstract
    This paper describes an innovation teaching experience with students of Applied Statistics in Social Science from the University of Valencia (Spain). The changes introduced attempt to adapt the curricula and the evaluation tools to the framework suggested by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which conceives the learning process as a global process along the life. The methodological innovation has changed the classical roles played by students and teacher in the classroom. In this new context, the students are more active and there is a more intensive use of the information and communication technologies. The teaching-learning process has evolved in a more relaxed environment, making possible to improve the rate of attendants and, mainly, the ones who pass the course.
