"Do no harm"- A Call for Greater Ethical Regulation of Innovation in Education and Training - The paper examines the curious absence of ethical regulation of trialling and mass innovation in education and training, contrasting the management of innovation in education with management of innovation in the medical arena. The issues are explored through four case studies from the English context. Each case study illustrates a different approach to mass innovation and reveals acute limitations in the design of trials. The paper explores the debate regarding whether trailling is possible in complex social systems but argues that there has been a serious neglect of the rights of learners in respect of innovation. The breakdowns evident in the case studies provide the basis for an argument that there is a need for ethical regulation of trialling, and the paper tentatively presents some prototype criteria for such regulation.)" />
