> HI there,
> This can be a low volume list, and so it might take a while before one of
> the leaders pops by. Hopefully, this will spur them on!
> One of the things that I personally believe needs to occur:
>    - Engage with universities on a global basis to understand their
>    needs. I'm sure some universitiies and colleges are producing trade school
>    "ethical hackers", but we need secure software engineers and computer
>    security scientists as well. We need to take them all on a journey.
>    - Turning the abandonware training we have been donated (such as my
>    two day 2009 donation) into a full semester 100/200/300 app sec course,
>    with exercises and group assignments
>    - Working on turning the Developer Guide (I do need help) into a
>    university level text book, again with sufficient rigour to be a good
>    choice for universities world wide given a bit of translation here and
>    there (yes, I am biased!)
>    - Curating the courses and presentations given over the last five -
>    ten years so folks can find good quality decks and videos
>    - Working on a Chapter Leader Corner, so chapter leaders who struggle
>    to find local speakers can adopt and present a deck, watch videos or show
>    them to their chapter
> Longer term, we need to work on a full undergraduate syllabus, and work
> with educators to create sample exam questions so that local lecturers can
> adopt and modify our exams for their purposes. Be warned, I'm not for tick
> the box exams, so we need to work out a way to develop and provide the
> answers in a confidential method to educators and not the students. I think
> we have enough donor material, the problem is that the templates are all
> over the place, the pedagogical outcomes range from awareness to deep, deep
> technical detail.
> thanks
