Cyber Security Katas: Practicing Cyber Defence Strategy Development with Scenario-Based Learning

Developing effective cyber defences requires identifying security concerns and designing solutions to address those concerns under various constraints. To become capable of doing this well, software engineering students need opportunities to practice and hone the associated skills and techniques. This project aims to explore the effectiveness of scenario-based cyber security teaching and learning by developing a collection of cyber security katas; scenarios and exercises designed to practice cyber defence strategy development in real-world contexts.

Integration of training in matters of Indigenous inclusion in the civil and environmental engineering undergraduate curriculum

This project seeks to develop purpose-built Indigenous Knowledge Bundles for the undergraduate streams in civil and environmental engineering, and integrate them organically into the revised, modernized curriculum. The project is a part of a broader initiative at Carleton University to integrate such training into the civil and environmental engineering programmes nation-wide and to ensure appropriate accreditation requirements by Engineers Canada.

Personal Achievement Awards

The Professional Achievement Awards recognize outstanding professional achievements at Carleton University for professional librarians and instructors.

Ahmed Hassan – Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Ahmed’s teaching philosophy is built on the belief that students inherently want to learn, and an instructor’s role is to remove what he defines as learning hurdles. He aims to do this through 4 avenues: sparking student curiosity through well defined and designed learning objectives and assessments, through humanizing the student-teacher interaction, through a process of continuous pedagogical improvement based on feedback and using technology to overcome logistical challenges.
