University of Vigo (SPAIN)
With the objective of contacting our students with active learning experiences, a learning activity based on the use of videos in small cooperative groups was developed. The aim was to promote comprehension of specific Pilates exercises integrated in the course of Pilates in Physiotherapy, a course located in the second semester of third year of Physiotherapy Degree at University of Vigo. In this communication we are going to present the students’ assessment on that learning experience.

The activity was carried out during a theory session of the course. Once the activity was over, which included videos expositions and the answering of specific questions, an ad hoc questionnaire was filled by the students to collect their opinion on the activity. 30 of the 39 course enrolled students had participated in the experience.

The main results pointed to a positive assessment especially on the aspects of: good work environment during the activity, the interesting and appropriate employed methodology, the comprehension of the subject included in the activity, the efforts done on thinking and reasoning the answers to the proposed questions, the working group promotion, the possibility of listening to their peers opinion and consequently discuss the adequate answers with them.

In the form of conclusions, it is important to stress that this experience was positively assessed by the students due to a good work environment and the working group promotion. As the main constraint of the activity we could mention the need of a large intervention, maybe the use of a lager session to develop the activity or the use of this methodology in different sessions during the course length.
