The most important thing is to build knowledge together with a team. In inquiry learning, students take charge of their learning, they are in the centre of the activity. Lecturers act as facilitators of learning, they guide the learning process. The learning process is shared with other learners. Observation, reflection, assessment and development are emphasised throughout the process: students get feedback from peers, lecturers as well as the industry representatives. They reflect on their own learning and the goals set out at the beginning. In the end, the intention is for knowledge to be shared. The method gives students competences that they need in the work life Knowledge triangle: A model of universitybusiness co-operation where the actors are university lecturers, students and industry representatives 101
