The aspiration of many governments around the world is to ensure all university graduates are well-versed in computing science and its related topics. This results in many graduates participating in postgraduate conversion courses. Many computing science schools favour delivering aspects of some topics, such as cyber security, simultaneously to students majoring in computing science and those converting to it. The challenge becomes integrating and understanding such a disparate student cohort. In this paper, we propose as a solution a learning design that has active, constructive and interactive elements. Student experience is reported and discussed, before considering the many benefits of the design.
