SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2021
Funding to eligible participants for completed cyber case studies The Air Force Cyber College announces a call for abstracts for teaching cases on topics related to Cyber Strategy, Policy, and Leadership. Teaching cases or table-top exercises identify dilemmas, or lead students to do so. In contrast to traditional academic cases studies, teaching cases do not “solve problems” in the text of the case – they enable active learning for students to work them out. Successful abstract entrants will be invited to work on their draft cyber teaching case in the Air Force Cyber College Cyber Case Study Workshop – three (3) sessions of eight (8) hours. Cyber College will review and award eligible participants for cases successfully completed. Successful finished case studies will earn $500; a total of $2,000 will be paid for the Most Important case study, $1,500 for one Extremely Important case study, and $1,250 for one Important case study. Case studies will be published by the Air Force Cyber College Case Study Program. Unclassified cases will be published online on the AFCC Case Study page.
Adjustments in the AFCC’s Workshop project schedule make possible an extension of the deadline for abstracts until November 15, 2021.
The Air Force Cyber College seeks dilemma-driven scenarios from which case studies will be developed for classroom use. This aligns with a framing of the “case study” concept advanced by Harvard Business School. For the Cyber College’s educational objectives, these dilemma cases should be plausible scenarios about possible cybersecurity issues that defy simple solution and which can be considered especially for their operational and strategic level implications.
The Workshops themselves will be held in early 2022 and the timeline will allow development and decisions on funding, as appropriate, subsequently. Funding for projects is as previously determined, with the project determined to be the “Most Important Case” eligible for $2,000 in funding, for one “Extremely Important Case” eligible for $1,500 in funding, and one “Important Case” eligible for $1,250 in funding. Other cases that are selected for development at the workshop series, completed, and accepted by the Air Force Cyber College are eligible for $500 in funding.
300-word abstracts and an accompanying curriculum vitae or Armed Forces biography document can be sent to AWC.CyberCollege.Org@us.af.mil
