Abstract:
This paper explores the increasing focus on the value of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in contemporary discourse and the challenge that this presents for established educational systems and traditional pedagogy. Through analysis of key literature and exploration od educational case studies, issues of definition and interpretation are explored in parallel with consideration of wider questions of operationalization and systemization. Focusing on how educational systems impact on the development and realization of these capacities through educational processes, the paper develops an overview of key perspectives, highlights examples of variation of interpretation of key terminology and presents points for consideration in the process of educational systems design. The paper concludes that there is an evident tension in educational models related to the definition and development of graduate attributes in particular but that there are educational strategies capabl;e of developing creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship as definable outcomes of learning and teaching processes.
