The primary aim of the article is to examine the pedagogical intervention aimed at enhancing didactics through the utilization of science and innovation within the teaching-learning process of Sport Sciences and Physical Activity. The qualitative research conducted is descriptive in nature and is based on a non-experimental design. The intentional selection of participating subjects was confirmed by 31 students pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Sport Science and Sports in Italy, with 16 of them being female (51.62%) and the remaining 15 students being male (48.38%). Among the eight teachers involved, 62.5% are female, while 37.5% are male. The methods utilized included observation, questionnaires, document review, application of inclusion criteria, and statistical analysis to assess the reliability and validity levels of the data, resulting in a confidence interval of 90% and a significance value of p=0.1. The statistical analysis was carried out using the SPSS program version 23 to delve deeper into the significance of integrating science and innovation into the art of teaching as part of the structural components of didactics, such as content, objectives, methods, means, and evaluation, aimed at enhancing the quality of education.
