Industry, government-sanctioned research and development and the private sectors have historically been the champions of fostering innovation with the aim of addressing changing human needs as well as economic gain. The connectivity of the 21st century coupled with advances in information systems and the unchecked advent of globalization have resulted in challenges to existing institutional structures in place as well as a greater awareness of inequities within and across different regions of the world. Innovation and innovation education are the new buzz words increasingly inundating popular discourses in different media. The aim of this avant-garde book series is to unfold the conceptual foundations of innovation from historical, socio-political, economic, scientific and ethical perspectives, as well as apply these foundations towards issues confronting education, science and society in the 21st century.

Advances in Innovation Education is interested in soliciting book proposals that address provocative issues occurring at the intersection of information technologies and higher education - particularly those that require innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The book series is also open to broader proposals addressing innovation at the interfaces of society, institutions and learning such as ethical and philosophical questions that crop up with the unchecked ubiquity of IT in the 21st-century society.
