Abstract: This small-scale interview study explore engineering expert teachers’ experiences and ideas of e-learning within engineering education. The aim is to capture teachers` experiences entering educational situations that forces them towards new modes of teaching as well as towards a closer collaboration with the industry engineering professional practice. The study addresses challenges crucial for engineering teachers to master when designing e-learning courses that manufacturing industry needs. In the paper we highlight how teachers’ perspectives effect the design of work-integrated e-learning courses. In particular we investigate how teacher express their ideas regarding the transition of campus courses into work-integrated e-learning courses as a new teaching situation. Findings show that teachers are content experts in the engineering knowledge field but lack experiences and support for design of e-learning courses.
