Higher education innovation
So it was with a particular joy that I found this room in a university near the centre of England which had been set aside for "innovation". Inside it was just another cell with seminar style rectangular desks and dull office chairs. There was another innovation room - seen here - with exactly that room allocation timetable on the door - and even more dull furniture inside!
You could practically hear the conversation: "Innovation? yes we're on top of that - here it is in the spreadsheet, Room 250"
Oh dear, I'm not sure that many universities will make it, are you?
