Cybersecurity Training for Teachers (CTT)
To mitigate the effects of school closures as a result of COVID-19, digital platforms have been variously adopted by governments to enable teachers to deliver blended or full online lessons to the learners. In many families in the developing Commonwealth, learners are increasingly accessing online learning and assessment resources using devices owned by parents or older family members. // The shift to online learning presents various security threats to teachers, learners as well as their parents and carers as they are now more prone to cyber-attacks than before. Recent reports show a spike in cybercrime since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, making cybersecurity a key concern for educators. // The Cybersecurity Training for Teachers (CTT) course is designed to provide teachers with the knowledge they need to protect themselves and their students online, as well as create awareness for the parents and careers. // The course targets secondary and primary school teachers as well as teacher educators and will run over four weeks. It will require up to five hours of time each week. Participants will learn from articles, case studies, videos, as well as discussions with fellow learners and mentors.
