Innovation for Performance in HE

Programme leadersSelyf Morgan

The module considers Higher Education Institutions as part of an Innovation System that includes stakeholders and institutions within industry, government, and national and international non-governmental agencies, paying attention to both local society and the global networks within which HEIs operate, and their influence on academic activity, staff expertise, and student recruitment.

Functional and institutional components of HE including Education, Research, and Social or Engagement missions, and concepts of governance systems, norms, working cultures, and networks are explored from the Innovation System perspective, along with the interactions between actors and elements of the system that affect the development and diffusion of innovations.

Target audience

Understanding the position and role of the institution within a wider context is important for all levels of management. In HE, all managers should be able to consider innovative management processes within a framework that links the functions and processes of HE institutions, and enables effective change within a rapidly evolving global market.
