We started hacking a couple of years back, competing in capture the flag competitions. Hacking through the weekends and winning prizes sure was a lot of fun. But it‘s nothing compared to the joy of teaching offensive security to students and observing them surpass themselves every week. For multiple semesters now, we‘re teaching hacking to undergraduate students. Somehow we managed to make our course the most attended one in the whole bachelor program. Our lecture doesn't follow teacher centered methods, but utilizes problem based learning and lessons learned from capture the flag competitions. Since teaching also means learning, we worked in a lot of feedback from our students and aligned the contents of the course. In this talk we‘ll explain how to learn and teach this challenging topic, how to correctly use problem based learning in teaching and how to avoid typical pitfalls.
