Abstract

In this paper, we present an hybrid educative methodological approach to promote creative and innovative thinking in software design and development, and at the same time, to promote the development of transversal and professional skills. So, we combine teaching and learning strategies based on projects (PBL), computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL), design thinking (DT), visual thinking (VT), gamestorming (GS) and gamification techniques. Moreover, we present a case study applying this methodology to teach software engineering.
