This article describes the experience of using Action-Research as the method to study the educational reality of robotics

teaching in the Computer Engineering Degree, to improve its comprehension and to achieve its transformation in line with

the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The systematic process of the educational practice modification is detailed:

problem detection, plan formulation to solve it, implementation in the classroom and evaluation of the obtained results

based on the evidence collection and analysis. These evidences are taken from questionnaires, students performance and

teacher reflection during different academic years, applying Action-Research in the classroom.
