Models for Information Assurance Education and Outreach: A Report on Year 1 Implementation
Wang, Jianjun
Grantee Submission
On September 22, 2012, NSF announced its decision to fund a three-year project, "Models for Information Assurance Education and Outreach" (MIAEO). In the first year of grant operation, MIAEO has invited 18 high school students, two K-12 teachers, and two CSUB student assistants to conduct research explorations in the fields of "network security" and "cryptography." The hands-on investigation was led by the PI and Co-PI in 2013 summer, and produced five poster presentations through "Research Experience Vitalizing Science-University Program" (REVS-UP) at California State University, Bakersfield. In addition, MIAEO faculty worked on curriculum developments in "Information Assurance" (IA) across multiple departments, and organized a public symposium to expand IA education for approximate 120 community members. Methods employed in this evaluation report include document examinations, participant surveys, and social network analyses. The qualitative and quantitative findings lead to four recommendations to sustain the ongoing progress. An appendix includes: Poster Presentations of Five IA Research Projects.
