Collaborative learning is an important part of innovative learning scenarios such as flipped classrooms. However, little insights are available regarding the appropriation process of collaborative learning. Based on adaptive structuration theory, we derive insights on the appropriation process of collaborative learning by means of a qualitative approach. The results show that appropriation is characterized by initial appropriation and task related discussions. Moreover, an analysis of the identified appropriation junctures indicates the crucial role of information technology in the learning process as well the impact of appropriation patterns on interaction. For one, the present paper theoretically contributes to the scientific discussion concerning collaborative learning appropriation and its evolving nature. Second, it also makes a practical contribution by deriving implications for collaborative learning in flipped classrooms.
