Evolving a Web Science curriculum

Evolving a Web Science curriculum
Evolving a Web Science curriculum
Web Science is an emerging subject, which was formally defined
in 2006. Since the inception of Web Science, a number of Web
Science taught programs have emerged across the world. Despite
this, there are still currently very few attempts to provide a formal
curriculum definition for Web Science. This paper outlines a
study which explores the scope of Web Science, by examining
what is taught as part of Web Science MSc and Undergraduate
programs worldwide. This paper presents some initial results of
the study, including the most frequently occurring ‘key topics’
found from an analysis of Web Science taught modules. Plans for
future work are then outlined; the ultimate aim of the study being
to present a view of Web Science as it is taught across the world.

Abstract

Web Science is an emerging subject, which was formally defined
in 2006. Since the inception of Web Science, a number of Web
Science taught programs have emerged across the world. Despite
this, there are still currently very few attempts to provide a formal
curriculum definition for Web Science. This paper outlines a
study which explores the scope of Web Science, by examining
what is taught as part of Web Science MSc and Undergraduate
programs worldwide. This paper presents some initial results of
the study, including the most frequently occurring ‘key topics’
found from an analysis of Web Science taught modules. Plans for
future work are then outlined; the ultimate aim of the study being
to present a view of Web Science as it is taught across the world.
