More than ever, in the 21st century, is essential to acquire competences to learn, to find and manage the information that is needed to solve the anticipated problems or the unpredictable ones. Teaching must be organized towards the acquisition of these competences (basic skills), providing to students activities in which their commitment, responsibility and critical exercise of freedom are essential. I briefly present a case of teaching, at the university, based on negotiation and project work. The teams have created e-portfolios (open portfolios on the internet, blogs) and only 5 of the face-to-face 48 hours were expository (lectures by the professor). The approach has generated interest and high motivation and allowed the proper production and construction of knowledge by the students.
