There were six tracks of sessions, one being a workshop room. Topics included Cyber Security, Teaching Best Practices, Industry Partners, ICT Pathways, and Technical Topics. Educators teaching educators!

 

Our Cisco DevNet staff collaborated with instructors, to find ways to provide:

  • mentors for female students
  • resources for network academy instructors
  • curriculum for network engineers
  • up-to-date content in Programming, IoT, Network Security, and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)
