Abstract

In the first years of a university degree it is very important to maintain student motivation in order to avoid possible risks of early dropout. To this end, the design of practices focused on the improvement of transversal competences such as Teamwork and Oral Communication allows students to make more motivating progress in their specific knowledge. At the same time, students improve in skills that are highly recognized and required in the professional world. The practical awareness of the student’s level and the current context of hybrid teaching (face-to-face and virtual) derived from the pandemic increase student motivation to improve these competences. These skills are based on work in specific subjects and in a way that is independent of the type of degree/studies being studied, with a homogeneous profile at a national level.
