In a single collection, The Encyclopaedia of Educational Innovation brings together world leading researchers to guide readers through the complex and fascinating debates between innovation as the most dominant discourses of the knowledge economy and new cultural and sharing economics promoting social and open dimensions as a means of fostering international competitiveness and developing platforms for creativity and innovation.
