Teaching & Learning
UdG as a social referent
Organization and resource management
Curricular innovation in higher education institutions (HEIs)
Since 2005 the University of Girona has developed its own teaching management model following the lines of the Bologna Process. Nowadays and after six years of work, all the courses in the UdG apply to this model, based on the concept of competence and assuring a real link between each competence, learning activities and contents.
In 2010 the UdG has sgned an agreement with a spin-off company with the aim of transfering its own software named "Teaching management tools" to the educational market.
