Abstract

While innovation is a central concern in higher education, I have sought to understand those professors who innovate. This qualitative research focuses in particular on pedagogical innovators in the context of a university strongly committed to research, the Université de Montréal, and explores the impact of disciplinary culture on pedagogical innovators’ profiles. This research reveals the characteristics of the innovators interviewed and underlines the impact of the pure science and applied science axis on pedagogical innovator characteristic diversity.
