Abstract


The role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education has been peripheral, with new technologies being added to the traditional teacher centred model of instruction. Students in the global economy of the 21st Century need to be creative thinkers and innovators. Thus, this paper provides an overview of the integration of innovation and education which plays an important role in propelling the human capital to a higher level to realize the objectives of Vision 2020.The integration of teaching and research is becoming a key issue in higher education, not only in order to differentiate the character of universities from other teaching and learning institutions, but also in order to find ways to create the kind of knowledge needed in a world characterized by a turbulent environment and increasing change in daily life.The right blend of pedagogies, tools and media needs to be created, quality assurance at various stages of planning, design and implementation should be embedded at every stage to ensure that we produce the desired graduates.
