Abstract [en]

This paper describes the educational model four partner countries have developed in the context of Community Service Engineering (CSE). CSE is a project co-funded by the European Commission within the Lifelong Learning Programme 2013-2016.All participating institutions start from real-life project work with technology students (EQF level 6 or 7). All partners underpin this project work with a taught programme and the mentoring of the students. All students create an online portfolio in which they illustrate both the process and the final result of their project. (International) interaction is stimulated in the project based course work in various stages and for various reasons. International interaction is also facilitated via the taught programme to touch hot topics and compare between country contexts.The paper sums up the four building blocks which form the educational model and are the stepping-stones to move forward the real-life project work and allow for (international) interaction with students and other stakeholders. In the next paragraphs the paper identifies the prerequisites,process and outcomes that made collaboration for Community Service Engineering possible on the level of institutions, teachers/professors and students. Here we also touch the importance of networking with partners in the field in the various countries. The CSE curriculum also offers new opportunities and perspectives for them. In the last two paragraphs the paper pays detailed attention to the role of the teacher/professor and the future plans partners have for the CSE curriculum. Here the concept of ally partners will be explained and a call to join the consortium will be launched.
