Abstract: The main objective of this document is to identify and specify the lines along which the evolution of the UOC's educational model must be directed and driven. This model was adequate when it was designed. The evolution of the university and the technological developments which have taken place over recent years mean that it now needs to be revised and new lines established to guide its development and to include innovation as an element which will help achieve and boost the UOC's leadership in the field of e-learning. The model we present is dynamic and flexible. It is designed to adapt and evolve constantly. It is a model that guarantees closer links between the learning methodology and the students' experience, emphasising networked and web-based learning. It is a model based on the design of spaces, resources and dynamics that aid learning. Students and their learning activities are the focus for training activities that look to ensure constant improvement of student competences. The educational model promotes participation and collective knowledge building through an interdisciplinary and open approach to students' educational, social and working experience. The model incorporates collaborative learning through methodologies that involve problem-solving, participation in the development of projects, joint creation of products, discussion and investigation. Efforts are made to introduce entertaining elements to increase motivation and aid learning of complex knowledge. As regards the structure, it is organised into four parts. The first part refers to the analysis of the UOC's educational model based on the contributions from the Innovation in the Educational Model working group. The second part describes the fundamental characteristics of the development of the proposed educational model. The third details the UOC's mission in relation to its teaching. And finally, the fourth section presents a series of teaching scenarios to identify and highlight the lines of action to ensure the model's continuous evolution.
