The implementation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) required university courses to strengthen the development of students' competences. In this framework, teamwork and the use of new technologies have become key competences in many courses. This paper presents the results of four editions (2012-1017) of The Maddisson Awards, a practical exercise to develop both competences. Specifically, it consisted in writing, filmmaking and editing short films related to different topics studied in Economic History. In total, almost 2,000 students have participated, who working in groups, have made more than a hundred videos. The results have been highly positive, corroborating the usefulness of this exercise to bring the Economic History closer to students, stimulating creativity and the degree of involvement during the course. However, it also posited some difficulties.
