Nowdays, the relevance of higher education in the 21st century in terms of the need to adapt and respond to new modes of knowledge production is highlighted [1].
Learning outcomes are statements of what a student is expected to know, understand and/or be able to demonstrate after completion of a process of learning [2].
The traditional teaching is commonly referred to as a teacher-centred approach. A criticism of this one is the difficulty in stating precisely the actual student’s skills after passing a module or programme. Therefore, international trends in education show a shift from the “teacher-centred” approach to a “student-centred” approach [2].
Morover, for industry, a new mode of knowledge which is produced in the context of application is important [1].
At this moment our research projects are focused on the use of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) as synthetic recognition elements, considering their promising applications [3]. So, the purpose of this paper is to report our multimodal experience of teaching, learning and reseach, developing a practical guide to learn first MIPs concepts from reseach articles.
