About the course format

The course has a hybrid ‘flipped’ format where students are expected to review content before each class (asynchronously), and then the synchronous class time will be used to engage with the material in a seminar type context with rigorous discussions and explorations. Students are expected to actively participate in the discussions. The instructors are there to facilitate these discussions, debates and analyses, not simply to lecture.

Students should spend about 30-60 minutes prior to each class session reviewing the online asynchronous content (hosted in the LLC’s Learning Management System - Moodle), completing online activities (including asynchronous discussions). The instructors will moderate these discussions to enhance the learning experience, and use them to help inform the following in-class/synchronous discussions (hosted in the LLC’s Zoom rooms). The course includes a capstone research project and class presentation.

At the end of the course, students will be required to complete a brief survey with an optional exit interview. As this is a pilot, we eagerly wish to learn each student’s perspectives on the course, its goals, format, structure and possible future directions/applications.

Certificate

Participants who successfully completed all of the course requirements received a certificate of completion. The certificate of completion was endorsed by the UW National Center of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity (NCAE-C) and the UW Language Learning Center.
