  • Abstract
    Collaborative project-based learning is a useful methodology, specially suitable in the teaching philosophy promoted by the European Higher Education Area. According to this methodology, the professor proposes the students one or several real-world cases. Students must work cooperatively in groups to seek solutions to the cases. In this way, collaborative active learning takes place, students learn to learn and to apply the theory to practical situations. A pilot experience is presented consisting in the application of this methodology to a Statistics undergraduate course in a Veterinary degree programme. In this context, projects were proposed based on real cases. The data were obtained from the research activities that take place at the Faculty of Veterinary of the University of Extremadura. The results of the experience show that this methodology is adequate to acquire several important competences of the Veterinary degree programme.
