Main results
The discussion and work sessions on the content of the modules, learning pathway and collaboration were productive and fruitful. There was agreed that it is necessary to revise the created material and to adapt the material to the learners and the environment need. The learning pathway should stress the practical way of learning. It is necessary to include in the learning material more real, practical business cases; to analyse the real situations, videos. This will make sense in learning about social entrepreneurship and will make the platform more attractive.

The overall discussion gave as the further guidelines how to work and where to go. Also the World Cafe helped us to distinguish the main competences of the social entrepreneurship and to identify the learning pathway of social entrepreneurship.
