Cybersecurity Teaching in Higher Education
School of Science
The growing plethora of computing devices and ubiquitous computing comes with a sky-high number of cyber-crime occurrences that need to be investigated by digital forensics professionals. This urges contemporary teaching models and constantly updated teaching material for university courses in digital forensics, aligned with current industry standards, trends, and practices. However, the special skillset required for graduates to be work-ready makes it challenging to teach background-related concepts, engage students in case studies that resemble real-world investigations, and demonstrate reports that present digital artifacts that can be turned into evidence admissible in a court of law. This chapter discusses considerations and technology-enhanced learning environments for teaching digital forensics for university students in class and online.
