Within agricultural vocational education there are various initiatives of collaborative innovative learning. For example: students work together in a school context on an innovative solution of an authentic entrepreneurial problem or students work together in a college company. In my view these initiatives deserve further development. My first step as a teacher-researcher was an orienting review on factors enhancing the process of collaborative innovative learning. In the follow up, I plan to collect qualitative data from case studies within agricultural vocational education focusing on the value of these enhancing factors.
Case studies selected will meet the following criteria: intended knowledge creation, input of a wide variety of accessible resources to develop the artefact, duration of the process.
