Abstract: This teaching tip deals with the use of a learning log in an information systems security class. This technique supports the individual topic expert teaching tip contributed by Denise R. McGinnis. A learning log is a tightly focused academic journal that is created as the student becomes knowledgeable on an individually assigned topic. The log can serve as the basis for generating Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), support class discussion, and provide the basis for the creation of a class presentation and web site.

Keywords: Learning log, Journal, FAQ, Information systems security, Topic expert
