SaTC-EDU: EAGER: Peer Instruction for Cybersecurity Education

Funding Agency

Starting date



2 years


In this project, we develop and evaluate the effectiveness of peer instruction methodology for cybersecurity education. The project focuses on three security courses that have been taught extensively by the PIs, and are considered core to the cybersecurity program of the University of New Orleans (UNO). The courses—Introduction to Computer Security, Digital Forensics, and Network Penetration Testing—offer an introduction to security concepts, a defensive view of cybersecurity, and an offensive view of cybersecurity practice, respectively. The former is closest to the traditional lecture format, whereas the latter two are intensive hands-on classes. Together, they form the basis of a broad skill set and perspective on security.
