Description

The H4D Educators Course is a 2-day workshop at Georgia Tech University that prepares prospective Instructors, Government Sponsors, and Corporate Partners to take part in the Hacking for Defense™ class. This is an amazing opportunity to learn the Hacking for Defense™ methodology with likeminded educators and innovators from across the United States. This course will certify participants to teach H4D™ and any of the H4X™ classes.

Join the original course authors, veteran H4D™ instructors, and recent H4D™ students in an engaging two days of panels, networking events, and interactive exercises. The course content covers teaching and mentoring students in Hacking for Defense™, developing their interest in national security issues, and how to craft 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 Methodology, as well as best practices for running the course. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage former students and instructors during Q&A panels, and you will be provided a copy of the H4D™ Educators Guide, a comprehensive reference for teaching Hacking for Defense™. Former problem sponsors will present their experiences working with students and how to successfully manage relationships with Government Sponsors.

The H4D™ Educators and Sponsors Course is the only approved course that satisfies the certification requirement for instructors wishing to teach any of the H4D™ classes, including Hacking for Defense, Hacking for Diplomacy, and, Hacking for Homeland Security.

For potential Problem Sponsors from across the Interagency, the course provides insight into their role and how to maximize the return on their investment. Topics include how to support student teams and what to expect from the class, how to submit and word your problem statement, good problems vs. bad problems, and how to maximize the chance of being selected by a student team.


Corporate and Industry Partners

For Corporate & Industry Partners, this course provides an opportunity for your cohorts of H4D™ team advisors to become certified in applying lean methodology to solving national security problems while also learning how to make the experience supporting H4X™ more valuable to your organization.
