      • Legislators who are at least graduates
      • Serving civil servants
      • Employees of technology companies
      • Employees of civil society organisations
      • Graduates who are interested in e-governance

      • III Conclusion: A Summing Up
    • II Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-1
      • There is no standard curriculum in e-governance
      • Every stakeholder is pulling e-governance to his own practice or discipline
      • This has prevented consolidation of e-governance
      • And led to fragmentation of e-governance
    • The Turf War in E-governance

      • How to end the turf war in e-governance and make e-governance curriculum inter-disciplinary?
    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-2
      • Being Web-based, e-governance is global in character
      • Boundaries of nation states have become irrelevant in the age of Internet
      • There is great exchange of ideas, information and knowledge worldwide
      • But the needs of the people are at local level where they work and live
    • Global Characteristics and Local Needs
      • Internet
      World Wide Web Discussion Groups Blogs Wiki Twitter Local Needs Quality of Life Livelihood Security Safety Technology Citizens E-governance Citizens

    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-3
      • State has its own demand for e-governance, typically for improvement in internal processes
      • Citizens have their own demand for e-governance, typically for better service delivery
      • State would like to have a governance-centric e-governance
      • Citizens would like to have a citizen-centric e-governance
    • State and Citizen
      • State vs Citizen
      Governance-centric E-governance Citizen-centric E-governance State Citizen Technology Technology Technology E-governance

      • How to balance the requirements of state and requirements of citizens in e-governance curriculum?
    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-4
      • E-governance is governance mediated through technology
      • How much weight should be given to governance?
      • How much weight should be given to technology?
      • Governance: Technology, 50:50, 60:40 or 40:60 or any other ratio?

    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-5
      • There are many competing items claiming to be included in e-governance curriculum
      • The time available is, however, limited (2 days, 3 days or longer?)
      • How to provide “hands-on” experience?
      • Which elements must be included and which can be left out from the curriculum?
    • Competing Elements for Inclusion Must Know Should Know Could Know
    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-6
      • E-governance has a number of theoretical perspectives
      • Currently, however, e-governance is dominated by practice
      • A mix of e-governance theory and practice will enrich each other
      • What should, however, be the mix?
    • E-governance Theory and Practice
      • Theory vs Practice
      E-governance Theory E-governance Practice E-governance Curriculum E-governance

      • Challenge No.6
      • What should be the percentage of content of theory and practice in e-governance curriculum?

      • How relevant are such case studies in designing new e-governance projects or improving the existing projects?
      • Should they be included in e-governance curriculum?
      • If so, what should be the criteria of selection of case studies in e-governance curriculum?

      • Specialists (technocrats) however need to broaden their vision

    • Emerging Challenges in E-governance Curriculum-10
      • E-learning and e-government: a non-separable couple (Palkavits, Lorente and Karagiannis 2002?)
      • E-learning has overwhelming advantages over traditional offline learning like 24x7 availability, quick updating, interaction, etc.
      • Does e-learning require a separate curriculum, or
      • E-governance training curriculum can include training in e-learning?
    • E-learning and E-governance Training E-learning ( Online ) Learning ( Offline) E-governance Training Curriculum E-governance
    • E-learning and E-governance Training
      • Challenge No.10
      • How to incorporate requirements of e-learning in e-governance curriculum?

      • Meeting emerging challenges in curriculum development, and
      • Promoting e-learning
