IA2- Joint Course and Summer Schools Sorana CIMPAN (University of Savoie)
WP Vision • Link betweenResearch and Education • 3 dimensions • Joint Courses • Use whatexistswith the NoE, and makeitavailable • SummerSchool • Focused on specifictopic, at the edge of research • Internet Science Curriculum • New challenge in terms of overall structure • Use partnerspotential in terms of content IA2
Organization of Joint Graduate Level Course • Cases • University of Oslo • On a pre-existing joint graduate level course cooperation between University of Oslo, University of Lancaster and University of Mannheim. • Taught by KaveSalamatian • Internet Science: a manifesto. • Warwick University • 3 courses taught during the complex system summer school • OXII • Internet Technologies and Regulation • Tutorials from the Summer School • Considering the construction of a MOOC IA2
2nd EINS Summer School • In Annecy from Oct 7th to 11th • 27 participants • 3 from outside the NoE • 13 CS, 7 Social Science, 5 Math-Physics, 2 Biologists • Two topics • Behavioral Analysis • Emergence of Networks • Format • Morning and afternoon lectures • Group working sessions • Participant presentations session on last day IA2
3rdEINS Summer School • Call for proposal • Objectif: identify potential organizers • launched in November • Two partner propositions • University of Passau • CERTH • Result of partner voting : • CERTH organizes in Volos, Greece • Undergoing : Topic election IA2
Internet Science Graduate Level Curriculum • The most challenging part of IA2 • Due to the diversity of the potential input students • Maturity state of the field from academic perspective • … the lack of “internet scientists” in the industry • The crystallization of the advances made on Internet Science • Rather than the starting point in the work on Internet Science as initially planned IA2
Links with other WP • The Internet Science Curriculum builds upon the results of the other WP • The work on building an Internet Science Curriculum has a similar nature with the one on Internet Science Roadmap • Investigate the relation between the two IA2
Curriculum Challenges • The process of building the curriculum • Focusing on the student • Focusing on the content • Specialist in different disciplines and aware of Internet Science vs. Internet Science Specialists • Challenge on the content • Multidisciplinary challenge • Challenge on the form and pedagogical choices that foster interdisciplinary • Find the balance between “knowing everything about nothing” and “knowing nothing about everything” • The meta-level related to interdisciplinary work • are there special abilities to posses or acquire ? IA2 .
Internet Science Curriculum facts • A call for participation for a Workgroup has been launched. • Result : good coverage of the different disciplines - CS, sociology, governance, law, communication, economy • Two group conf-call meetings so far • Set the main objectives • Decide on the agenda • First face to face meeting : Paris, the 10th of March IA2
Future Steps • Have a draft on Internet Curriculum by June • Identify further Joint Courses • Prospect the possible implementations (Erasmus Mundus, MOOC, etc …) • With impacts on the Curriculum • Organize the 3rd Summer School • Internet Science Curriculum Workshops • Co-located with the Cross-JRA workshop • co-located with the EINS Conference IA2
Conclusions • Challengingwork on Internet Science Curricullum • Lookingforward to a succesfullSummerSchool in Greece IA2
