Abstract

Throughout the literature, there are several studies that highlight the importance of interaction in the classroom as a means to promote student learning. Based on this idea, and due to the absence of previous studies that do it, the objective of this work is to propose a questionnaire that allows to measure the level of interaction in university classrooms, as well as to identify the best interactive practices, from a triple perspective: observed teacher, external observer and student. This work is part of a teaching innovation project carried out by a multidisciplinary group of lecturers from the University of Cantabria. In this study, in addition to presenting the aforementioned questionnaire proposal, the research process for the collection of data and the analysis of results will be described. It is considered that the main contribution of this work is the proposal of an instrument for measuring interaction.
