Abstract [en]

This paper presents an innovative experience that was developed by six European universities to teach a common course in an unconventional, remote way, to geographically-separate groups of students. The course is especially designed to enable engineering students to learn the basics of how the European social and sustainable model works, to acquire some basic cultural and religious awareness, and to stimulate transnational group discussions on such intercultural affairs. One overarching goal of this T.I.M.E. (Top International Managers for Europe) European Summer School (TESS) course is to identify some of the challenges that an academic collaboration organization like T.I.M.E. faces for future education, especially considering that the computer literate and highly web-based children who are born today will, with their expectations of ‘virtual 3D encounters’, be entering university by 2030. This web-based, social interaction experience has been developed over the last four years. This paper gives the results.
