This paper reflects the experiences with Dialogue Design for cross-cultural collaboration and product development in relation to local transformation of practice(s). The paper presents a methodology for transnational learning using Dialogue design on deliberate ideals and continuously evaluation as principle for guiding the process. Dialogue design is based on experiential phenomenology taking the point of departure for design and evaluation processes in the experienced practitioners themselves. The methodology has been developed in relation to the research and development project Making Online Path to Enter new Markets- MOPEM. It is an EU-research project with partners from different Educational Institutions of Technology and Business in five European Countries. The results of this transnational project suggest that in the development of net-worked learning environments, infrastructure cannot be reduced to technical solutions, as the cultural aspects of the educational infrastructure, teaching traditions and student expectation also play their role
