2007 (English)In: Fifth World Conference on Information Security Education: Proceedings of the IFIP TC11 WG 11.8, WISE 5, 19 to 21 June 2007, United States Military Academy, West Point, New York, USA, Springer, 2007, 25-32 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Modern university studies cater to large groups of students with consideable variation in background knowledge. This creates problems when designing viable practical exercises, not least for the subject of IT Security. We address these problems by creating a study environment within which students have the freedom to design and execute their own exercises. We suggest and test ideas for providing sufficient motivation and structure for student activity while minimising the need and cost for staff intervention.
