Workshop on Intelligence Teaching @

From May 12-14 the Central Florida ICCAE will be holding a Workshop on Intelligence Teaching for any faculty member associated with an ICCAE program. This program is designed to help faculty members who may not have a professional background in intelligence design and teach courses on intelligence and intelligence methods with confidence.

During the workshop, participants will hear from faculty at the National Intelligence University, Intelligence Community personnel from the different IC agencies, and faculty at civilian universities with experience teaching students about intelligence.

Our planned topics for the event include:

• Teaching intelligence without a professional intelligence background
• Psychology and intelligence analysis
• Teaching structured analytic techniques (and knowing their weaknesses)
• Teaching quantitative approaches to intelligence
• Designing and implementing effective simulations
• Integrating intelligence studies with STEM curricula

Because this workshop is funded in part through our ICCAE grant, faculty from ICCAE institutions can participate for free. Note that this is not limited to PIs, and multiple attendees from the same institution are welcome.

Given the current COVID situation, we encourage remote participation—though we hope that there will also be an in-person option if circumstances allow.

This event is primarily for PhD students interested in teaching intelligence courses in the future, faculty, and other professionals that are a part of the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence program.
