He is currently teaching Medicinal Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Granada (Spain). He has imparted 8 courses on "Drug Design and Organic Syntheses" at the University of São Paulo, campus of RibeirãoPreto (Post-graduated programme in Pharmaceutical Sciences in the years 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2014) and at the São Paulo campus (Post-graduated programme in Pharmaceutical Sciences in the years 2012 and 2015). Moreover, through these collaborations, professor Campos has contributed to improve the scientific and academic background of many former Brazilian students, who are now associate professors in several Brazilian universities. He received the Teaching Excellence Award 2010 from the University of Granada, within the category of teachers with over twenty-five years of teaching.

Nowadays, the expansion of new technologies in developed countries requires their inclusion in the higher educational systems, focused on the development of new skills to promote a continuous and independent learning process for the students. Internet technologies have reached a wide social diffusion, mainly among young people, and therefore the use of digital technologies at university, from smartphone apps to online collaboration tools, is becoming more and more embedded. This article describes the exploration of using wiki to promote the study of a degree in Pharmacy, particularly in the area of Pharmaceutical and Organic Chemistry, by creating a collaborative network that encourages group interaction instead of individual achievement. Our initiative is aimed at developing a number of skills and abilities of students and improving their academic performance and their comprehensive training. This work has been carried out with students, who followed Pharmaceutical Chemistries I and II, compulsory courses of the degree in Pharmacy, and it has been extended to other compulsory (Organic Chemistry II) and optional courses (Advanced Chemistry of Drugs), for a total of 200 students. Students have worked in teams on topics related to the subjects above indicated and have used wiki to develop their work. Opinion polls have shown a degree of satisfaction between high and very high in their performance, highlighting the benefits of using wiki in learning.
