Cooperative Learning in Information Security Education: Teaching Secret Sharing Concepts

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Information security is an important yet challenging area

    of education. Much of the difficulty lies in the complexity of security

    schemes and the often perceived disjoint between theory and practice.

    This paper investigates the topic of adopting cooperative learning for

    teaching secret sharing concepts and schemes. The aim of this is to motivate

    and cultivate an interest in students to learn more about the topic.

    By designing hands-on cooperative learning activities, the goal is help

    students appreciate the connection between theory and practice, and

    to be able to help and encourage each other in their understanding of

    the area. In this paper, we analyze the suitability of this group-based

    learning approach in relation to addressing the five essential elements of

    cooperative learning.
