The study followed an interpretivist philosophy to accomplish its goal. As a conceptual article, the research team has contemplated on the proposed design, which was deliberated with academic administrators and experts, and students. The study has proposed a supplementary architecture to reinforce the traditional learning ecosystem by leveraging the ubiquitous presence of technology-enabled learning atmosphere. The conceptual framework proposed would guide higher education institutions to relook at their course structure and implement flexible, versatile programmes. Exposure to multiple discipline verticals can help learners develop a civic citizenship. The article has attempted to overhaul the existing confined-learning environment with a new outlook.
