    Abstract :

    The goal we propose in this paper is to see how the development of the teaching ethos is a channel of innovation in the educational institution. Yet at the same time it could be argued that the ethos is the channel of innovation in any social environment in which it manifested. We begin by focusing on innovation and seeing its manifestation is extensive within the social framework. Next we outline one of the difficulties innovation faces: the stupor. This allows us to highlight that innovation is essential in the novelty of the innovative action in accordance with the attitudes of those who carry out this action. The novel character puts more emphasis on individuals than on the processes that all innovation involves. The notion of field emphasizes that virtue is key to better understand innovation. The virtues and the conditions that are key to who innovates will be addressed. At this point, if the ethos or character is the mode of personal being self-acquired in the daily exercise of freedom itself, it will be the natural channel through which innovation must be carried out. We will examine the ethical virtues that make up the teaching ethos, finding there the nexus between ethos and innovation. Finally we point out that the proposal about the virtues that accompany the teaching ethos can be extended, basically because in practice the teaching ethos is indiscernible from the human ethos, and because the personal imprint made on what has been done basically depends on the human ethos.
