    Abstract

    A sales representative from the New Shiny Tool company approaches the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Innovation) at a mega-conference, or an academic comes to their Associate Dean Learning and Teaching to request the installation of an ideal small plug-in for the learning management system. Is this how innovation in higher education happens? What might happen next? In this experimental session, we will, with the help of the session audience, chart the characteristics of a robust innovation project and map some institutional case studies against this benchmark to foster greater understanding about the complexity of change and the implementation of new technologies for learning and teaching. Decision points and the perspectives of the decision-makers will be acted out in rapid scenarios, highlighting the choices available at each stage.
