As a space for educational innovation, it aims to offer a unique training experience to students and teachers, in which the educational objectives are delivered in a more effective and profound way, explains Antonio Obregón García, Vice-Rector for Academic Planning and Teaching Staff. We take further steps in our purpose of integrally training students by using the most appropriate resources at our disposal, as is undoubtedly the case with the mashme.io Room of the Future. “
