About the thesis

This thesis addresses the concept of student-driven innovation from the perspective of vocational education. This is done by experimenting with interdisciplinary problem-based workshops as a tool for generating and applying innovation capacity. These workshops are adapted from university and university college level initiatives to learn how experience generated through use of these methods and principles can be applied within the vocational domain.
