The Innovation in Teaching and Learning Project has been a two year joint endeavour between the Council of Deans of Health and the Higher Education Academy. The project’s first year focused on scoping and identifying innovations, including developing a student journey to provide a framework on to which innovation could be mapped. However, as the design for the case study collection began, it became clear that there were relatively few surveys of the existing evidence on innovation in health HE. A literature review was therefore commissioned, looking across all health professions and outside the UK to give an international context to the case study collection. It was also apparent from the early work of the project that work on innovation often focuses on specific initiatives or technologies rather than on the context in which they develop. The project’s second year therefore took culture of innovation as an explicit focus, including the publication of a second literature review exploring the research evidence on developing and embedding new practice.
