The design of collective protections of construction works is a topic that is integrated within one of the MBTI subjects. This paper presents an experience for teaching the design of collective protection in building works. Teaching has been done in a blended way.

This subject is taught as part of the content of a wider subject included in the Master “Building Technological Innovation” (MBTI) of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). This Master’s degree is a postgraduate of research nature.

Graduating in MBTI implies that students are in a position to begin their PhD thesis. At this stage, often students are not able to follow the rigour established by the schedule of classes. For this reason it is interesting that part of the teaching is developed in a non-classroom based way.
