Innovation in Tertiary Institutions in New Zealand: The conditions for the future collaborations for Chinese/Hong Kong and New Zealand institutions

Innovation in Tertiary Institutions in New Zealand: The conditions for the future collaborations for Chinese/Hong Kong and New Zealand institutions

by Dr. Richard Heraud, Tutor, Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, New Zealand.
Chair: Dr. Liz Jackson.

 

Abstract 
In the seminar, Dr Heraud will problematize how the concept of innovation is understood in tertiary institutions in New Zealand, with the intention of characterizing the collaborative conditions under which Chinese/Hong Kong and New Zealand institutions might collaborate more in the future, and how to best understand shared academic and commercial opportunities and benefits that should flow from such relations. The nexus of the discussion will focus on the difference between Technological Innovation and Technological Change, and how these concepts occupy our thinking in diverse ways regarding how innovation and change are realized in tertiary institutions.
