D10.3: Description of Internet Science Curriculum

Abstract : This document presents a proposition for a reference Internet Science curriculum that can be adapted and implemented jointly or in collaboration, by different Universities. The construction of the curriculum represents a challenge and an opportunity for the NoE, as it represents the essence of Internet Science. What are the main aspects to be taught? What is the kernel? These questions are answered by the curriculum. The curriculum is a reference document and a guideline for the different universities wishing to implement it. It has to allow for adaptation to the heterogeneous national and institutional contexts. Nonetheless, our goal is to have the curriculum provide a definitive basis for a universally - recognised degree, considering the related constraints in order to ensure compatibility. In this way, the curriculum presented here is the root of a range of curricula; it may lead to a degree within an existing Departmental course, an autonomous an d dedicated degree or a component of new joint degrees. This document presents the process that lead s to the construction of the curriculum, followed by the main goal, the scientific content and issues related to possible implementation. The version presented here is a preliminary version. This is due to several reasons; most noticeable being that the choice of the implementation schema is currently under study (deliverable due for end of 2014) and it s input might influence the form or content of the curriculum. On the other hand, we will start collecting feedback, which will might as well trigger changes. The curricula in its current form it’s been subject to a communication at WebSci Education Workshop, held in conjunction with the Web Science 2014 Conference, in Bloomington, Indiana, June 2014. We had positive feedback during the conference from the web - science community. The 6 theme balanced structure was particularly appreciated.
