This project (NSF Award# 1438861) is a collaboration between Tennessee Tech University and Towson University. The project team will address cybersecurity workforce issues by improving faculty expertise in cybersecurity. This will be accomplished by a series of workshops for computer science faculty that will be taught by cybersecurity faculty. The workshops will provide faculty with teaching resources and prepare them to incorporate cybersecurity concepts into their courses. The project will be funded by the Division of Graduate Education through the Cybercorps: SFS program.

The CReST project will host multiple regional faculty development workshops across USA. The following describes the first one in the series:

  • Current trends and state of security
  • Security modules in CS courses (Computer Literacy, Introductory Programming (CS0, CS1, CS2), Software Engineering/Database Management Systems/Operating Systems/Networks)
  • Training in instruction, assessment and active learning exercises
