Abstract:Spanish University is currently going through a great process of restructuring due to the accession to the so called Bologna process, which basically consists of the unification of higher education in Europe, in order to ensure mobility of students and mutual recognition of degrees among State parties.
One of the consequences of the implementation of Bologna’s Model in the Spanish Universities is the need for teachers to complement taught-programmes, based on lectures with new teaching techniques and methodologies.
In order to achieve a suitable adjustment, since 2007, the Faculty of Labour Relations of the University of Murcia have developed an educational innovation pilot project based on the European Space of Higher Education applied to the degree in Labour Relations.
In this paper we would analyze the results obtained by the students of both existing groups in the subject Human Resource Practice. The first group was constituted by students who have followed the subject under the educational traditional system based on the magisterial class. The second one is formed by students integrated to the pilot project, so these students have been in touch with educational methodologies and materials used inside the adjustment to the European Higher Education Area.
