- Peer learning (PL) is a strategy where students learn from each other without direct teacher intervention. Five pillars support this strategy: interaction, negotiation, organization, feedback, and evaluation. According to the problems students face, self-learning is one of the tools they need to face and is a generic competence they should apply. This article presents a PL experience in the undergraduate degree in Computer Science Engineering (CSE) of the Catholic University of Temuco (UCT), emphasizing how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can support each pillar. The curriculum includes a course called Integration Workshop (IW), a capstone course to instantiate the competences acquired by the students up to that point. In this experience, we joined teams from IW II, as developers, and IW IV, as SCRUM Masters. Students rated the experience positively while highlighting the development of other generic competences such as collaborative work, knowledge management, and valuation and respect for diversity.
