Abstract
This article presents a pedagogical design model for a university teaching-learning process that seeks to place the emphasis more squarely on learning opportunities than on the part to be played by teaching. The design places the student center stage - in a role where he or she is called on to play a creative role - in an attempt at motivating the student to the full. Within this framework we devise a teaching process centered on the undertaking of project work that is designed specifically for the students and with the aim of allowing them to develop their skills as learners. The article begins with a description of the theoretical framework that supports the approach adopted in the subjects imparted, and goes on to provide a detailed outline of the activities students undertake. Finally, the article discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the approach as revealed in our experiments with it.
