Event description
Hacking for Defence Educator & Problem Sponsor Course with H4D UK and Defence Academy, United Kingdom

About this Event

The Hacking for Defence® (H4D) Educators and Problem Sponsor Course is a two day workshop at the UK Defence Academy, Joint Staff and Command College that prepares prospective Instructors, MoD Problem Sponsors, and Corporate Partners to take part in the Hacking for Defence course. This is an opportunity to learn the Hacking for Defence methodology with likeminded educators and innovators from across the United Kingdom. The course is free to attend.

Join veteran H4D instructors and recent H4D students in engaging panels and interactive exercises. The course content covers teaching and mentoring students in Hacking for Defence, developing student interest in national security issues, and crafting and responding to practical problem statements. Join us and become part of innovative methods in solving hard national security and defence problems.

Instructors

Instructors can expect to gain an understanding of the H4D curriculum, the underlying Lean LaunchPad Methodology, as well as best practices for running the course. Former problem sponsors will present their experiences working with students and how to successfully manage relationships with MoD Problem Sponsors.

The H4D Educators Course is the only approved program of instruction that satisfies the requirement to teach Hacking for Defence.

Government Problem Sponsors

For potential Problem Sponsors from across the MoD, the course provides insight into their role and how to maximise the return on their investment. Topics include how to support student teams and what to expect from the class, how to submit a problem statement, and how to maximise the potential of a problem being selected by a student team. Problem Sponsors will get a chance to speak with past Problem Sponsors in a Q&A.

Corporate and Industry Partners

For Corporate & Industry Partners, this course provides an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the H4D course, how to support the students teams as an industry mentor or corporate partner, and what to expect from the student teams and course as a whole.
