Active student-centered teaching makes its way as a paradigm shift in university education. This methodology is the one that the evidence accumulated in pedagogical and neuropsychological studies shows as the only effective. A change in the teaching structure and organization of the subjects is necessary, especially in science, to adapt them to this approach. We proposed the design and delivery of theory sessions based on solving questions. These questions will be solved independently or in groups by students. The resolution of these questions will imply the acquisition of a series of concepts not explained by the teacher. Here we present a module of active teaching based on solving questions that is exportable to any science subject.
