In developing a new set of courses in Information Assurance at Penn State University’s School of Information Science and Technology, a group of upperclassmen with previous Information Assurance experience were recruited by professors to develop a series of educational lab assignments. These labs were developed using Problem Based Learning concepts encouraging student understanding and exploration as opposed to a more step-by-step and purely methodical approach. In conjunction these students were responsible for creating a network environment as a platform for these labs that would also be capable of supporting undergraduate research of Information Security issues.
