This presentation will begin with a brief introduction to establish a common understanding of the term 'innovation' in the context of higher education. It will then summarise key principles for good design of innovations, based on relevant research and theory. In order to demonstrate the application of research to development, there will be shown a representative sample of exemplary innovations in learning and teaching within healthrelated subject areas, as educators seek to respond to rapid and significant changes in both education and health care policy and practice, such as patient-centred quality care, economy of resources and inter-disciplinarity (Barr, 2002). Particular attention will be paid to Scottish initiatives.
