Abstract

Development of Learner Centred Supplementary Curriculum for Library and Information Science Fraternity by Analysing Social Networks: A Concept

Curriculum based knowledge is limited to a particular country’s education system and industry, which limits the potential opportunities for an individual to grow globally. In regular education system, individual gets a chance to learn a limited amount of knowledge / skills and that too in a restricted time period but the social networks which have plethora of think-tanks, helps individual to develop themselves in a particular domain without having a time restriction. Educators who are active on such networks also get an input to enhance curriculum according to the current and futuristic needs. Also, the queries and discussions on the social media platforms helps to create the digital curriculum which is not supposed to be the core syllabus but can be used as reference study material which can be accessible throughout the country. The aim of this study is to give a conceptual model of a digital inventory for learner centred supplementary curriculum, to give the concept of how the queries and discussions posted by professionals / educators on the social networks give inputs to enhance the learner centred view of curricula for both the categories of students as well as professionals. The novelty of this study is that this research aims to use the form of information from social networks and convert it into a readable and available resource for both the entrants as well as the eminent professionals in the Library and Information Science domain.
