Can a teaching support center evolve into an incubator for educational innovations ‒ and more importantly, should it?

I believe so on all accounts! We are privy to and support incremental innovations happening across the campus on an ongoing basis. We offer tool sets and processes which support innovative practices, but the real innovation happens when the faculty change their practice in the classroom.

What would it take to be called an incubator? I believe we would need to better document and follow up on the innovations which emerge from activities within the teaching and learning centre. We also need to foster a safe space for folks to experiment with new practices and approaches.
