In order to respond from the university to the demand of creating an educational program for an archaeological site, the present project aimed to explore new possibilities to join together research, teaching and transferring knowledge to the field of heritage education. On the one hand, it sought the strengthening of evidence-based methods for this research field. On the other hand, it required the development of effective and innovative teaching methodologies to broaden research possibilities. In 2017-2018 academic year, pyramidal tutoring of seven undergraduate research theses was coordinated by means of project based learning (PBL), cooperative learning (CL) and service-learning. To the literature and best practice previous review, an action-research phase followed to design, implement and evaluate the experimental program, which was finally presented to the community as the educational program of the archaeological site of Santa Criz (Eslava, Spain).
