The increasing digitalization of education requires an integrated view of innovation and related expertise development. This study validated and evaluated the content and use of the ”Integrated ICT Motion Sensor”, a tool for stimulating awareness about ICT-based educational innovation among multiple stakeholders within higher education institutions. The Motion Sensor offers administrators, managers, ICT specialists, educational designers, and lecturers a guiding tool for entering into a dialogue about substantive themes such as vision and policy, leadership, professional development, and ICT infrastructure within the institution. The validation of the content by questionnaires and a focus group with 10 experts showed that the experts’ input was almost in line with the Motion Sensor prototype, which was based on the literature. The use of the Motion Sensor was evaluated in a pilot study within four higher educational institutions. Results from the questionnaires showed that participants generally appreciated the nature and course of the conversation. Moreover, the Motion Sensor led to more awareness about ICT-based educational innovation among participants.
