.Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this work was to implement information and communication technologies (ICTs) at postgraduate level. In this particular case, USINA, a decision-making simulator designed by the Center for Innovation in Technology and Education (CITEP), of the University of Buenos Aires, was used. It allows working with stories, case studies and uses the "error" as a teaching method. Methods: 1) Design a sequence of screens to be mounted in the USINA platform to use it as a tool for the integration of concepts in two postgraduate courses: Protein Downstream Processing (DSP) and Applications, Synthesis and Analysis of Synthetic Peptides (ASAP). 2) Apply anonymous quiz to evaluate the efficiency of USINA. 3) Perform a class attendance to exchange opinions on the experience. Results: During both courses (DSP and ASAP) the experience was very successful. The students felt that the use of USINA enhanced learning and helped integrating concepts by situating them in the role of experts. Discussion: The use of ICTs in higher levels of education remains a pending issue. Through the experience here analyzed the possibility to bring this tool to undergraduate courses and more students is opened.
