The aim of the project is to design and develop scripts for performing the collaborative tasks included in the instructional program of the courses under study. The courses follow a problem based and case analysis methodology.

These scripts may refer to different aspects of the organization and development of group activities, such as:

-phases of development of the activity;

-instructions regarding the tasks and subtasks in each phase;

-the group composition and organization in each task or phase;

-the possible distribution of information, materials and resources among participants;

-relations and interactions between groups, and with the lecturer;

-the process of reflection and evaluation of the activity by the participants;

-the timing of the different phases and of the whole activity.

We consider the possibility of incorporating some of these scripts into online resources for teaching support, such as certain moodle tools, which have already been used by the research team in previous projects, as well as in their teaching activities (for instance ‘tasks’, ‘consultations’, etc.).
