Spanish Universities have been carried out many changes to drop the old paradigm of teaching and adopt the new paradigm based on theory and research that have clear applications to instruction. Nevertheless, the implementation of innovative learning-teaching experiences entails a careful consideration to promote an effective and quality formative process.
This paper reports the experiences carried out at Technical University of Cartagena to adapt the subjects to the new credit system: the ECTS. An application to an undergraduate course on Fluid Mechanics is provided, including the most remarkable aspects of the teaching guide, the teaching models, presential and non-presential sessions, the day-by-day planning, the teachers´ diary and the new assessing approach: Competency-based grading. The most remarkable conclusions provided by teachers and students are addressed in this work, such as the favourite activities and methodologies, the assessment procedures and the corresponding workload. Furthermore, a view on the use and integration of ICT tools on engineering subjects is also provided.
