Overview

In 2000, the UK Government funded the establishment of the Cambridge MIT Institute (CMI) with the expressed purpose of improving the impact of UK Universities on the UK economy. The programme of work conducted by CMI covered the full range of activities in and this book reports on its educational activities. Through a regime of investigation, intervention and assessment, CMI advanced understanding of how the practices of both Universities contribute to the subsequent performance of their graduates as innovators and entrepreneurs in later life. The investigations began with an analysis of the impact on students of participation in exchange programme which saw a cohort from each University spend a year in the other. The interventions included changes in curricular and pedagogy, and the implementation of practices taken from one University in the activities of the other. The book will be of interest to educators interested in developing the curriculum and pedagogies of their institution to equip their students for the demands of the modern workplace; policy makers concerned with the economic impact of Universities; and researchers interested in the changing nature of higher education in a globalised world system.
