When we talk about innovation, are we sure we are all talking about the same things?

Defining Innovation is the digital augment to a museum installation exploring the past, present and future of academic innovation. First launched at the Online Learning Consortium's Innovate conference, Defining Innovation is designed to provide a foundation for deciphering the innovation concept/buzzword. Rather than accepting the dominant cultural assumptions of innovation or assuming innovation is bound in hype, the six experimental films are designed to challenge educators, scholars & practitioners to rethink what constitutes innovation as a product, process, value or other interpretation.

The digital footprint of Defining Innovation affords the project the opportunity to grow, and continue to track the course of academic innovation as a sociocultural phenomenon. The 2016 and 2017 Defining Innovation installations addressing the past and present of academic innovation are in the process of joining the 2018 future experimental films, providing a learning resource on an often-used, rarely-defined concept.
