CoDeS is a network that includes a group of experts in the field of ESD who have direct experience in the development of School Community Collaboration in ESD or SD. They all bring to the network strong backgrounds based on their particular fields of experience such as teacher education, NGO, research, policy making, educational administration and school teaching.
The purpose of this chapter is to present a detailed and justified description of the case study methodology developed by CoDeS network. This methodology is considered to be an inquiry process undertaken by CoDeS partners that served for identifying, writing, analysing, reflecting and disseminating contextually relevant cases from the point of view of practitioners. The chapter provides a justification of case study methodology in international ESD projects, presents a model of case study inquiry, and disseminates the strategies used within CoDeS network to scaffold partners in the building of CoDeS cases.
