Abstract

Postgraduate students in cyber security face a number of challenges, including unfamiliarity with an institution, culture and peers. Developing confidence, connection with peers and assessment literacy within a given institution can be challenging. A potential solution is to provide learners the opportunity to an activity early in their course that enables them to practice skills, connect with peers and develop a sense of what is expected of them. This poster reports on an active learning practice that affords students the opportunity to connect with peers, develop skills and learn about cyber security using research methods.
