Intervention on urban environments and the city in general terms requires, besides a specific ability to read and understand it, the ability to find the proper answer that necessarily implies a subjective interpretation and a personal contribution of architects regarding urban design. This paper, a work in progress, aims to explain a new adaptation of an effective teaching strategy, the e-Portfolio, in order to ensure that students acquire specific and transversal competences needed for addressing urban projects with a sufficient cognitive and instrumental background to undertake the urban complexity.
