Topic description

Innovating is a means of organisational and personal renewal that provides for contextually responsive shifts. This topic explores the ways we might grow and shape the innovative endeavours of educational communities. How we understand innovating, the ways we might promote it and the various organisational implications are central to this topic.

Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Explore understandings of innovation as a process and the ways it takes form in organisations
  • Facilitate evaluations of the ways leaders and communities might draw on their strengths to engage more with processes of innovation
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Initiate processes and strategies that are likely to develop high engagement and innovation in a relevant project
  2. Evaluate their role in leading processes for innovating within their organisation

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
