We explore in this session our initial research on building capability for all our graduates to engage effectively with innovation,the process of creating value by the successful mobilization of new ideas”.

Our working definition of Innovation-Enabled Graduates has two elements:
  • Enabled for Innovation through development of knowledge, skills and mindsets
  • Enabled by Innovation embedded in academic programs and teaching and learning activities.
Our initial research for this potential undergraduate degree level attribute is a review of exemplary practices and research evidence, structured using an adaptation of the Assuring Graduate Outcomes framework. A key goal of the session is to gather input from participants about resources, insights and issues to be considered as part of the review, including
  • interdisciplinary curriculum to build knowledge about the concepts and contexts of innovation;
  • experiential learning opportunities to build innovation competencies;
  • teaching and learning environments that serve as models to foster innovation mindsets.
