Our Strategic Aims
Drive a culture of open innovation across the Coventry University Group, by expanding and enhancing the distinctive, internationally recognised and sector-leading ethos and approach to higher education innovation, research and development. Helping to make Coventry an international exemplar of best practice.
Stimulate innovation and collaboration by challenging mind-sets amongst key stakeholders in teaching and learning. Champion and evaluate new practices, tools, methodologies, facilitate path finder cross-faculty collaborations and create shared spaces which incubate and nurture future looking ideas and pedagogies.
Positively influence the teaching and learning culture working in partnership across the Coventry University group. Act as a facilitator for constructive, fast-tracked, change across the University and more generally, drawing on developments demonstrated and proven in the Lab.
Provide enhanced opportunities, space, resources, capabilities and funding for agile experimentation with creative, playful, radical and provocative ideas, models and approaches. Advocate a positive attitude for understanding uncertainty and learning from failure towards fostering new best practices for effective teaching and learning innovation.
Identify and sandpit ambitious initiatives that make a real impact on the learning landscape. Explore, repurpose and remix approaches and technologies in order to stimulate new income sources and practices, encourage and ferment exciting new international collaborations.
Welcome the opportunity to identify early challenges and obstacles that may ultimately impact the University more generally. Explore and mitigate early on, in a single place and within a tightly controlled environment
