NSIN Course Will Teach College Educators about Hacking for Defense

June 4, 2024

DOD’s National Security Innovation Network is hosting a three-day workshop in northern Virginia next week to teach college educators about the Hacking for Defense program and how to get their students involved.

Hacking for Defense is a DOD-led university course that teaches students to work with the defense and intelligence communities to address national security challenges.

“By the end of this course, educators will have a thorough understanding of the H4D method, Lean LaunchPad principles, future workforce skills and research skills required to teach the class effectively,” NSIN said in the invite for the June 12-14 workshop. “They will be equipped to teach the students to apply these skills in developing a comprehensive mission plan based on the mission model canvas for a hypothetical product or service in the defense domain.”
