This study described and compared 12 classroom teaching innovations that were introduced at the University of Seville, Spain, during academic year 1999-2000. Students completed the Student Demographic Questionnaire (SDQ), and their perceptions of the classroom learning environment were assessed with the Evaluation of University Teaching Activities Questionnaire developed for this study and completed by 665 students. In addition, university classroom innovation practice was analyzed through teaching plans, observations, and semi-structured interviews with 84 students. Significant differences were found in several factors of student biography. Findings shed some light on the neglected theme of the teaching practice of university faculty. Research results and implications for improving university teaching innovation are discussed. Four appendixes contain the questionnaire and supplemental information. (SLD)
