The traditional teaching approach using lecturers is fundamental during the first years of graduation. In these periods students must learn by listening to the teacher’s presentation of some maters. Of course experimentation is also very important in this stage. But in final years of graduation is this also so fundamental? In an era where communication skills, research skills, team work and other related issues are of great importance when entering the job market, is it absolutely necessary that all subjects use the traditional teaching methods way? This paper presents a new approach to stimulate students to communicate, teach, and criticize other’s work in an interactive way and with it learn the subject’s program. The chosen assessment method is also presented and is notoriously different from the traditional way.
