Breaking the Mold: An Educational Perspective on Diffusion and Innovation Wikibook was created as part of a graduate course on Technology Diffusion, Leadership and Change (Curriculum & Instruction 511) taught at Iowa State University in fall 2012. It is a collaborative endeavor between instructor/editor and students/authors. Not only did they write this textbook collaboratively, but they worked together on all the elements that go into textbook development, such as the development of the table of contents, book cover, and title. This textbook also benefits from two interviews with well-known change agents and scholars in diffusion of innovation.
Special thanks goes to Ann Thompson, Iowa State University Professor and Peter Korsching, Iowa State Emeritus Professor who kindly agreed to join this collaborative effort and share their insights on diffusion of innovation; and to Janet Roberts who worked with the group to set up this Wikibook.
