Abstract

This investigation expands previous work responding to the growing need to educate and train cyber professionals of wireless and networking devices by guiding cyber education curricular development in undergraduate and master's degree programs. In the haste to expand cyber curriculum, important considerations to improve student learning may be overlooked, resulting in less effective and satisfying experiences. Enhancing effectiveness of the learner experience may leverage not just what, but also how, content is delivered. The result integrates 'minds-on' with 'hands-on' learning. This paper is authored by cyber faculty at a university that recently expanded undergraduate and master's cybersecurity programs to cover wired and wireless cyber curriculum. This initiative supplemented theoretical education with development of hands-on 'experiential' learner experiences across the curriculum.
