Innovation at Canada’s higher education institutions

Innovation and Differentiation in Canada’s Post-secondary Institutions, R. Crocker and A. Usher, Canadian Policy research Networks Inc., June 2006.

This report looks at the state of innovation on Canadian university and college campuses in teaching and learning as well as research dissemination. It is based on interviews with provincial officials, a brief survey of post-secondary institutions, and more detailed examination of six examples of innovative practices. Crocker and Usher focus on changes in general practice at an institution or across institutions, and, in particular, innovations designed to place an institution at the forefront of a field or to differentiate it from other similar institutions.
