Abstract [en]

Innovation is not a skill that belongs to a single individual that cannot be improved. Instead innovation should be addressed as a social event where the unified working knowledge stands the chance of leveraging regular work activities, enhancing the status quo. The purpose of this paper is to describe how an engineering student project can produce radical new output working in a highly self-regulated project team. The paper investigates how learning objectives, creative activities and team performance is centralized around committed individuals working as one. Using a full year academic graduate course, observational data and participant's reflections has been directed to better understand the relationship between functional knowledge, problem-based learning and creative activities. The findings emphasize that clear stated learning objectives in combination with an open and flexible coaching could have a positive affect on students' motivation to learn, participate and understand future work roles and processes.
