Integral formation is essential for students since it allows them to develop academic, professional and social competences. It is University’s responsibility to provide this full development of the individual; therefore, Ted Talks were used in this experience as a tool to tackle these aspects.

The activity was undertaken throughout an academic trimester with students of 2nd course of Architecture Degree. Students had to investigate and search for a Ted Talk related to architecture. It had to be inspiring for the rest of the class and deal with social responsibility. This experience was planned to be a source of reflection and motivation for the students.

On the other hand, the videos had to be in English with the purpose of improving students’ language skills.
A total of seven Ted Talks on different topics were visualized and debated in the classroom.

Finally, the students evaluated the activity by means of a questionnaire.

Results showed that students’ assessments were positive since the experience helped them learn about new aspects related to architecture, social sensitivity and, moreover, their language skills were improved (listening, English vocabulary, expressions and debate).
