The implementation of the European Higher Education Area and the proposal to revise teaching methodologies involve a new style of working for teachers in which the role of the student is enhanced through active involvement and independent work. Collaborative work is encouraged and teaching is planned to provide skills that will enable students to develop during their studies and ease their subsequent entry into the labour market. In this study we seek to show the perceptions of 290 students of varying specialities in teaching, Social Education and Physiotherapy on the use of different methodological teaching strategies: contract, active participation, the portfolio, seminars, work in groups, tutorials and the use of the Web Educational Platform, as valuable elements in the teaching innovation process. To do this, we submitted a questionnaire to them making a descriptive and comparative analysis using Pearson’s correlation. The most relevant results showed that, in general, the methodological strategies were well considered, with group work, seminars and active participation outstanding. However, differences were found in the value placed on contract, tutorials and the Web Educational Platform. Finally, the relation between contract, individual work, the portfolio and group work was established.
