Description

The Hacking for Defense® (H4D) Educators Course is a two and a half day workshop at The University of Michigan - Ann Arbor that prepares prospective Instructors, Government Sponsors, and Corporate Partners to take part in the Hacking for Defense course. This is an opportunity to learn the Hacking for Defense methodology with likeminded educators and innovators from across the United States.

Join veteran H4D instructors and recent H4D students in engaging panels, networking events, and interactive exercises. The course content covers teaching and mentoring students in Hacking for Defense, developing student interest in national security issues, and crafting and responding to practical problem statements. Join us, and become part of the Hacking for Defense movement!


Instructors

Instructors can expect to gain an understanding of the H4D curriculum, the underlying Lean LaunchPad Methodology, as well as best practices for running the course.

For potential Problem Sponsors from across the Interagency, the course provides insight into their role and how to maximize the return on their investment.
