ABSTRACT
The article proposes an approach of university teaching activities starting from a curricular design developed by Gagné at al. (1974). Several students, who were attending the pedagogical training program, proposed by the Teacher Training Department, have analyzed, using a single systemic observation grid, a number of 894 teaching activities that they were currently participating to. We found a strong link between a specific curricular design and students' perception regarding teaching efficiency for: maintaining attention and interest, understanding and retention of information, utility perception of the discussed topics and appreciation of learning facilitation. As a result, we proposed several curricular suggestions which could improve the academic teaching approach, regardless of the type of activity (seminar/laboratory or course).
