The IPv6 Buzz podcast often focuses on learning IPv6. On today’s show we turn that idea around to talk with a renowned instructor about teaching it.
Our guest is Rick Graziani, a CS/CIS instructor at Cabrillo College, adjunct faculty at University of California Santa Cruz, and a 20-year veteran of the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum engineering team.
Rick is also the author of IPv6 Fundamentals: A Straightforward Approach to Understanding IPv6 on Cisco Press (and recently updated with a 2nd edition).
We talk about the differences between teaching college students vs. training IT professionals, how IT and networking are taught in higher education today, and what Rick himself has learned from teaching.
Other topics include:
- Rick’s approach to teaching IPv6 in classrooms, books, and videos
- Classroom or academic knowledge vs. practical experience
- How the community college approach to teaching IPv6 differs from the university setting
- Challenges his students face with learning IPv6 (as opposed to IPv4)
Thanks for listening!
