Emlyn, you’re currently Course Leader in Computer Forensics, Security & Ethical Hacking at Leeds Metropolitan University. Could you tell us more about the role and how you entered academia?
As course leader it is my responsibility to maintain a healthy set of courses. By healthy I mean happy students, staff, good student intakes each year and courses that are fit for purpose. I, along with my team, try to ensure that the courses are designed and refreshed in line with industry: to allow us to do this we utilise industry experts as advisors, providing ideas and critical feedback on the teaching material, assessments and methods – through this we try to ensure that students receive a varied and relevant learning experience.
