Max Boisot left a legacy of educational theory and practice, although it was not a major focus of his writings. Therefore, this chapter attempts to codify some of Max’s innovative approaches to educational theory and practice. This chapter seeks to: 1) continue to build a bridge between educational theory and practice by use of the I-Space, 2) pull together some of Max Boisot’s nascent educational ideas so they can be more widely diffused, and 3) discuss some of Max Boisot’s innovative educational practices and how they can help the field of management education to attune its philosophy and practice more precisely to the need of the executives, managers and students it is eager to reach and impact. In order to supplement Max Boisot’s writing on education several former students and colleagues were interviewed. The chapter describes examples of the educational innovations that Max Boisot developed in the areas of: 1) educational philosophy, 2) educational design, 3) educational methodology/ instructional design, 4) educational technology, 5) transfer of knowledge, and 6) reception of knowledge. The power of the I-Space to transform our educational understanding and practice is discussed in detail.

Keywords:   Max Boisot, educational innovations, codifying Max Boisot’s educational innovations, contributions of the I-Space to educational theory and practice, application of the C-Space and I-Space to education, educational innovations in a Chinese MBA program
