Web Science: learning from experience
This position paper argues the case for a more detailed understanding of the learning experiences of early cohorts of web science students. The web science education workshop has a purpose of establishing a community of practice for web science educators. Alongside academic discussions of the appropriate content and processes incorporated into the web science curriculum, it will be valuable to gain insights that identify any barriers that might emerge when creating an interdisciplinary educational pathway. Such insights will necessarily reside in the experiences of early web science cohorts at undergraduate or master’s level. Valuable experience will also exist in the reflections of academics engaged in designing and teaching on these early programmes.

The paper’s topic is teaching materials and curriculum development and it addresses a number of the primary goals of the workshop, particularly experience of web science education. It is also relevant to the experience sharing goals of trans-disciplinary teaching techniques and praxis; teaching content design, student profiles in WS education and program design.

Abstract

This position paper argues the case for a more detailed understanding of the learning experiences of early cohorts of web science students. The web science education workshop has a purpose of establishing a community of practice for web science educators. Alongside academic discussions of the appropriate content and processes incorporated into the web science curriculum, it will be valuable to gain insights that identify any barriers that might emerge when creating an interdisciplinary educational pathway. Such insights will necessarily reside in the experiences of early web science cohorts at undergraduate or master’s level. Valuable experience will also exist in the reflections of academics engaged in designing and teaching on these early programmes.

The paper’s topic is teaching materials and curriculum development and it addresses a number of the primary goals of the workshop, particularly experience of web science education. It is also relevant to the experience sharing goals of trans-disciplinary teaching techniques and praxis; teaching content design, student profiles in WS education and program design.
