Main Article Content
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the concept of a pedagogical strategy called innovation pedagogy and study how it has been and will be developed. The paper provides a discussion of the changes in innovation pedagogy and, more generally, in higher education, including the changes in educational goals and involving a sustainable future as the priority in all education. The research methodology is based on action research and participatory observation as well as on the experiences of the authors of the development process, which has taken place in a Finnish university of applied sciences during the past 12 years. The study helps to understand how education development takes place gradually and how it can simultaneously respond to the demands of a sustainable future. This paper strengthens the understanding of innovation pedagogy by providing a set of concrete steps to advise how to put innovation pedagogy in practice.
