This paper describes the Innovation and educational improvement project developed in the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, oriented to the competence of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship.

These projects have been developed by a team of lecturers from different fields of knowledge. The first project was related to the definition of rubrics for the evaluation of the competence of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship, and the second one oriented to the definition of learning objects for this competence. Learning outcomes were identified in the first project and a rubric was designed to measure the level of mastery of these learning outcomes for bachelor degree and master. Once defined the results that must be achieved, in the second project, was conducted the review of the learning objects as the means through which the learning outcomes can be achieved. Identifying the definition, classification, metadatas, repositories and methodologies associated with them were proposed.

In the current project, the objective is the design of activities to accompaniment the learning objects, which will be developed in the classroom with the purpose of promoting the acquisition of the learning outcomes associated with the competence under review. This aspect is widely demanded by the teachers, which do not have proposals to develop in their subjects. The project will be applied and validated on two subjects of the school of computer science engineering and two subject of the school of Industrial Engineering in the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia.
