From an Analytical Framework for Understanding the Innovation Process in Higher Education to an Emerging Research Field of Innovations in Higher Education
Cai, Yuzhuo
Review of Higher Education, v40 n4 p585-616 Sum 2017
While studies dealing with issues related to innovations in higher education proliferate, there has been little consensus on key concepts and central issues for research. To respond to the challenges, this paper calls for developing a new research field--studies on innovations in higher education, by integrating two disciplines, namely innovation studies and higher education research. As an initial effort, the paper constructs an analytical framework for understanding the innovation process, particularly in the context of higher education. In addition to its academic significance, the framework may have potential to guide practitioners to implement innovations in wiser ways.
