The Art of Teaching Cybersecurity to All Types of Learners

The topic of cybersecurity is seemingly infinite in twists and turns, as it is pragmatically mystifying to many students, who have little experience with how the internet actually serves information versus what mobile apps and websites display to their customers. This session will explore experiences and techniques related to a goal many instructors face across a variety of disciplines: What are some of the best ways to design courses that attempt to teach highly technical skills and concepts to students who have a strong desire to learn, along with equal feelings of intimidation and frustration? Instruction that relies mostly on drills and repetition will be juxtaposed against gleanings from instruction in the world of the arts applied to major themes within cybersecurity and information systems. Accessibility concerns commonly ignored in the field will also be addressed.
