In any educational program, the curriculum perhaps is the best barometer of its nature and content. The same holds true for library and information science education when learning became more collaborative, flexible, and rigorous when things happen differently. Learning through practice has its own standing in education system and practicum actually allows an opportunity for students to put into practice what they have learnt in their classrooms. Besides examining the dynamics of practicum, the focus of my study at this time is mainly on symbiosis of schools and practitioners in terms of experiential learning, research, collaboration, and development in library and information science education.
I have been working as librarian, professional trainer, project director, and researcher since 2002 after my graduation in Library & Information Science from Pakistan,. Being a library trainer, I have started investigating new ways and themes to design advanced level courses for librarians in Pakistan. With that in mind, I became instrumental to further my studies and completed M.Phil with distinction where I have published and presented my research projects at national and international forums. The support and encouragement that I receive for completion of research projects, I made a choice to enroll for doctorate study in one of the good universities. While discussing my research intent with experts around the globe, finally I found CSU a vanguard to foster with.
