UCD Professional Certificate and Diploma in Creativity & Innovation for Education

Re-imagine Education



In response to current Government guidelines,  all UCD Innovation Academy courses are currently being delivered online using remote facilitation. This will be a facilitated virtual experience and our experiential,  learning by doing ethos has come with us as we’ve moved into this space.

Globally, governments are finding themselves challenged to provide relevant education for their citizens which keeps pace with the rapidly changing world and takes into account our near ubiquitous access to information and educational content via the internet.

The 21st century has seen fundamental shifts in our understanding of the neuroscience of learning and key structural shifts in the nature of our economy, society and world into which our students will enter.

If we are to fully realise our human capacity for creativity, innovation and learning we need to support our educators in enhancing their teaching practice and in the development of their own creative and entrepreneurial mind-sets, so that they are best positioned to develop such mind-sets in their students for the betterment of economy and society.

“…a fantastic experience that reinvigorated my teaching practice. The programme pushed my teaching well beyond its comfort zone and prompted me to think very differently about my approaches to teaching”Dr. Conor Buggy, Assistant Professor in Occupational and Environmental Studies at UCD

Who is this Course For?

This course is for academics and teaching staff of all disciplines working in higher education. From our experience of this course over the past three years the course is relevant for individuals who:

  • Have a deep commitment to teaching and learning and want to push this on further
  • Are ready to move up and onto the next stage of their academic career
  • May feel ‘stuck’ in their day-to-day approach to teaching and are seeking guidance, inspiration and a community of peers to enable them to move forward in their profession
  • Are relatively new to their role, may feel isolated and are seeking support

Past participants on this course include:




What is an Entrepreneurial Mind-set?

At UCD Innovation Academy we believe that everyone requires an Entrepreneurial Mind-set to overcome the challenges and to capitalise on the opportunities to succeed in work and life in the 21st Century.

An entrepreneurial mind-set is one that combines the ability to identify and create ideas of value (social, cultural or economic) with the ability to learn through intentional iteration (learning from mistakes) and the ability to engage others through empathy, teamwork and effective communication skills.
