Abstract: New teaching methodologies have sought greater integration with the learning process. Ideas of excellence and efficiency are now part of the educational objectives, whereas the result of the evaluation is a key tool in the process of selection and visibility. However, the traditional culture of knowledge transmission still seems to remain and, in a sense, hinder these metamorphoses. This study unveils our concern about the students' and teachers' perceptions regarding the distribution of tasks: which ones are to be performed individually and which ones should be shared, in the teaching-learning process. Evidence shows that students and teachers still assign responsibility to the teacher regarding the monitoring and evaluation of students. However, a significant number of students wish to assume or share part of these responsibilities, in particular with regards to the definition of the work plan and evaluation criteria.

Keywords: learning process tasks; teaching process tasks; new teaching approaches; student role; teacher's role; university; teaching-learning process; pedagogy; service-learning; who evaluates.
