Hargreaves, Janet (2008) Risk: the ethics of a creative curriculum. Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 45 (3). pp. 227-234. ISSN 1470-3297

Higher education in the UK espouses to develop intelligence and critical skills in undergraduates. To do this requires exposing students to challenge and thus risk.

Using two case studies, this paper argues for a utilitarian risk-management model that can accommodate creative learning and teaching strategies, while making sensible decisions about risk management
