Abstract

The integration of the Spanish University system in the European Higher Education Area established as one of the general principles for the design of the degrees that "the organization of teaching should be made under the aim of adapting the methods of teaching and learning to the acquisition of competences by students." And it specifies that "it should emphasize methods of learning these competences, as well as the procedures to evaluate their acquisition." The main objective of this work was to promote coordination between professors from different subjects of the four courses of the degree of Food Science and Technology, with the aim of facilitate the gradual acquisition of various generic and transversal competences such as linguistics competences in Spanish and English (G1), capacity for effective problem solving (G3) and working in group (G8). Some specific actions were implemented in order to promote each of the transversal competence. The results obtained showed different experiences of implementation and evaluation of these competences. All the evaluation processes were carried out through rubrics elaborated by the professor and given to the student. And all the processes of implementation and evaluation were conducted by professors throughout the four academic year of degree. Work in a coordinated manner along different courses and different degree subjects, improves the acquisition of competences.
