Abstract:The Technical Architecture Bachelor’s Degree (TAD) has been taught at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) since the 2009-2010 academic year, with significant experience in educational innovation and use of information and communication technologies (ICT) applied to teaching. Given the experimental and practical nature of the studies, and the consequent significant amount of practical work and laboratories, as with other engineering courses taught at the UJI School of Technology and Experimental Sciences (ESTCE), this degree is taught in person. However, the state of alarm decreed in Spain on 14 March 2020 as a consequence of COVID-19 forced all universities and educational centres to finish the course with non-classroom teaching. Following UJI guidelines and the different competent authorities in Higher Education, TAD adapted the teaching and evaluation of the different subjects to the non-classroom situation. The work here reported aims to identify which good non-contact teaching practices were successfully used in TAD during the state of alarm state of academic year 2019/2020 to evaluate if they could be incorporated into the degree’s face-to-face teaching activities. To do so, the different teaching methodologies and assessment systems that were employed in TAD during this non-face-to-face teaching period, along with the obtained results, were analysed. Information from both teachers and students was provided.
