This paper presents a series of activities and educational strategies related to the teaching of digital electronics in computer engineering. The main objective of these methodologies was to develop a final tutored coursework to be carried out by the students in small teams. This coursework was conceived as consisting of advanced problems or small projects that should serve as a compendium of the knowledge acquired during the course, with competition between the groups and students' assuming a professional role being key incentive factors. The result was that students had a high degree of motivation and engagement in the activity, as well as improved knowledge because of the self-learning required in carrying out the coursework.
