As part of designing a new Master's programme entitled Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship there was an apparent need to include a unit involving the use of innovative technologies for the development of innovative products and services. The authors aim was therefore to introduce students to Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents using, however, different from "mainstream" practices since the programme is addressed to students from varying, not necessarily Computer Science related, backgrounds. In this work they report their approach and experience from the entire process -from designing the unit, taking into consideration some inherent restrictions such as coordination of teachers and short duration of the course, to delivering it to a diverse audience that requires different didactic methods to be employed. Their primary aim is to disseminate their ideas and report good practice to fellow educators that may face similar situations or wish to employ any of our techniques. © 2011, IGI Global.
