Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (SPAIN)
The Degree in Smart and Sustainable Cities is a newly created degree that is offered by the Autonomous University of Barcelona as of 2017-18 at the School of Engineering with the participation of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The Degree is intended to provide strong interdisciplinary skills to form professionals with capacities in the field of social and political sciences with a very outstanding technological base. It is therefore a question of training professionals with cross-curricular knowledge, high versatility and capacity for adaptation to an extremely changing environment. The degree has been created with the idea of being accessible to students from secondary education with a broad profile, which can range from Humanities and Social Sciences or Science and Technology. Therefore, this degree is totally innovative, by the thematic, the moment and the really transversal characteristics.

The presented proposal is part of a teaching innovation project for reflection, design and development of "Web-based Applications", a first-year technological subject destined to a non-technical profile students. The article explains who to give a strongly practical focus to the subject following a semi-virtually modality (or blending learning) that combines strategies used in face-to-face teaching and online learning. This merging of methodologies allows to combine the best of each format to improve the opportunities of teaching and learning.
