International Journal of



Innovation
in Education
Scope of the Journal
Many countries are engaged in education reform in order to develop the human
resources necessary to remain competitive in the international marketplace. One
keyword in many of these reforms is innovation. However, innovation in education
appears to have multiple meanings. Sometimes, it refers to the need for education to
develop innovative people. Sometimes, it refers to new products, processes and
business concepts within education itself.
IJIIE subscribes to a broad understanding of innovation in education in order to provide
a wide platform for academic and practitioner discussion to create knowledge and
exchange ideas on this important issue. In particular, we are keen to explore and
examine the diversity in the current and future education landscape worldwide. We are
also interested in how innovation and diversity may be an integral part of a coherent and
powerful classroom, school or education system strategy, and the dilemmas and
tensions faced in pursuing innovation while maintaining quality assurance in education
at the same time.
