Lesson Topics

These lesson modules are centered around specific learning objectives, and are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons. Before jumping into using these modules, we recommend reading the articles from Security Education 101.
Within each of these modules, we have suggested prerequisites, warmups, activities, talking points, graphic materials, anticipated Q/A, as well as accompanying guides from Surveillance Self-Defense for tool configurations and installs. As you get more practice with digital security workshops, we encourage you to remix or repurpose these lessons how you see fit.
