Curriculum development practitioners have much to learn from each others’ experiences through a dialogue between the communities. The objective of this workshop is to share experiences of curriculum development in the SEFI and CDIO frameworks. While the SEFI and CDIO communities have much in common in terms of philosophy, the work has developed separately and there is a potential to achieve stereoscopic vision through looking at these common problems from two slightly different angles. While SEFI-CDWG has a general approach to engineering education and teachers development, CDIO has developed a more specified model. In this workshop we aim to investigate and compare aims, approaches and results of curriculum development innovations. Participants with experience in one of these “camps” will be able to learn from the other, and newcomers have a chance to learn about both.
