Teaching and teaching trends are in continuous transformation. Teachers and the teaching community play new roles in the teaching and learning processes. This situation implies the need of new competencies, knowledge, and skills in teachers to carry out their tasks, thus adjusting them to the requirements of contemporary society. The incidence of technology and new training resources and resources has led to an increase in innovative practices in learning spaces. This study focuses on analyzing the production of active methodologies in the Web of Science database. All this with the purpose of determining the state of the art on a field in the scientific literature from a bibliometric perspective. In addition to the study of the main indicators of bibliometric production, a word analysis has been carried out. To do this, 2208 documents has been analyzed. The study was carried out with the SciMAT software. The results reveal that scientific production has been increasing. The publications are mainly in English with a wide variety of topics, outstanding among them Higher Education in the early years. The study concludes that the research has specialized in topics such as the active profile of students and the influence of innovative practices on the learning process.
