Abstract [en]

This article presents a map of requests and expectations for future "delivery" methods of continuing engineering education (CEE) viewed from the perspective of Scandinavian managing directors and their employed engineers.

During the last decades numerous attempts have been made to develop new methods for CEE in order to meet today´s fast changing world. Methods, which at the same time both match the company´s professional competence needs and meet the engineers´ preferences. These attempts contribute to a lot of experience within CEE methods but common to most of these activities the focus is on the subject (content) of the course and less on how the course is organized and taught.

This paper brings the results of 26 interviews with Scandinavian managers and engineers asking questions regarding their previous experiences and knowledge on diverse CEE methods and further encourages them to gaze into the crystal ball to identify requests and expectations to future methods of CEE.

The significance of the investigation will be a conceptual map, which discloses some future focus areas ahead of CEE providers.
