Abstract:This paper discusses a teaching project aimed at getting an improvement in the academic achievement of students. The methodolgy is based on a meaningful learning process using role playing and video animations, especially in law cases –provided by Roman Law- in which the most important thing is to make a good conflict management. To make a good conflict management is an essential skill that must be developed in the legal profession. The goal is to make our students’ training process more effective and efficient and, at the same time more in line with new trends demanded by the labor market. University graduates that are able to provide "expertise" are expected.
The inclusion of new educational resources such as animations or role plays aims adapting a propaedeutic matter –Roman law- to the current changes of our society which is involved in a constant setting to new technologies. Video animations and role games can be instruments and tools that allow the students to arrive at a more meaningful learning and thus to get a greater safety and efficiency in the acquisition of knowledge, skills and abilities.
Project monitoring and evaluation is based on surveys made by students in which statistically will be measured the level of improvement in the acquisition of knowledge and skills relating to conflict management.
