Why universities don’t just need more innovation

A university class, Bologna (1350s)

I’ve written a piece on innovation in higher education: what’s happening, why the absence of a mature innovation system in HE matters, what’s gone wrong with MOOCs, and what could be done.

I hope that it will at least stimulate some debate!
