Ongoing Special Collection: Creative Technologies

What role does art education play in sparking creativity and entrepreneurship? And as digital and emerging creative technologies dramatically change how art is taught from one year to the next, how does such innovation affect how we learn to  create? 

Our Creative Technologies Collection explores the art of teaching and the teaching of art, focusing on the impact of innovative technology on art education and the issues that this technology raises. Artists, designers, educators, and technologists engage in this ongoing conversation at the intersection of theory and practice.

Aims and scope

The Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship is dedicated to exchanging the latest academic research and practical findings on all aspects of innovation and entrepreneurship in spatial context and over time. The central theme of the journal is to explore why some areas grow and others regions stagnate, and to measure the effects and implications in a transdisciplinary context that takes both historical evolution and geographical location into account.

Topics covered

Key questions
The journal addresses such issues as: How does technological advance occur, and what are the strategic processes and institutions involved? How are new businesses created? To what extent is intellectual property protected? Which cultural characteristics serve to promote or impede innovation? In what ways is wealth distributed or concentrated? These are among the key questions framing policy and strategic decision-making at firm, industry, national, and regional levels.

A global view
A primary feature of the journal is to consider the dynamics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the context of globalization, with particular respect to emerging markets, such as China, India, Russia, and Latin America. For example, what are the implications of China's rapid transition from providing low-cost manufacturing and services to becoming an innovation powerhouse? How do the perspectives of history and geography explain this phenomenon?

Connections, relationships, interdependencies
Contributions from researchers in a wide variety of fields will connect and relate the relationships and inter-dependencies among (1) Innovation, (2) Political Regime, and (3) Economic and Social Development. Articles will consider whether innovation is demonstrated differently across sectors (e.g., health, education, technology) and disciplines (e.g., social sciences, physical sciences), with an emphasis on discovering emerging patterns, factors, triggers, catalysts, and accelerators to innovation, and their impact on future research, practice, and policy. It encourages methodological innovation and trans-disciplinary connections to provide a missing voice in the design of theoretical and empirical research, as well as management and policy decision-making.

Technology and education
Since late 2016, when the Journal merged with the complementary open access journal Technology, Innovation and Education, we have been addressing the growing need for scholarly inquiry into the ways that technology and new organizational approaches, often enabled by technology, are impacting the field of education – broadly considered in all of its forms. This broad view includes the range of age-specific (pre-K through post-secondary and career training) and traditional physical structures, as well as online and blended models. The Journal explores new horizons in organizational approach and the roles technologies play.
