Teach Cybersecurity – July 26-30, 2021


The Teach Cybersecurity Workshop is a week-long (5-day) intensive workshop focused on getting educators ready to teach cybersecurity using the Teach Cyber curriculum. The workshop and the Teach Cyber curriculum use the U.S. Cyber Range, which is a cloud-based infrastructure operated by Virginia Tech University, a Teach Cyber partner.

The workshop is a unique-blend of group learning (both synchronous and asynchronous) and customized learning. We customize in order to allow teachers to prepare to use the Teach Cyber curriculum based on 1) whether their cyber security course is year-long, semester, trimester, or 9-week; or 2) if they are integrating cybersecurity into an existing computer science or information technology course.

The cost of the workshop covers attendees’ access to the U.S. Cyber Range for the duration of the workshop. Educators wanting to then implement the Teach Cyber curriculum using the range will either need to purchase U.S. Cyber Range access through Teach Cyber or find a suitable alternative.
