Digital forensics is a newly developed subject offered at Charles Sturt University (CSU). This subject serves as one of the core subjects for Master of Information Systems Security (Digital Forensics stream) course. The subject covers the legislative, regulatory, and technical aspects of digital forensics. The modules provide students detailed knowledge on digital forensics legislations, digital crime, forensics processes and procedures, data acquisition and validation, e-discovery tools, e-evidence collection and preservation, investigating operating systems and file systems, network forensics, email and web forensics, presenting reports and testimony as an expert witness. This paper summarises the process of subject development, delivery, assessments, teaching critique, and provides results from online subject evaluation survey. The dynamics and reflection on subject delivery is particularly important to determine if the subject has met its objectives. Results from the subject critique and student evaluation survey are presented and a reflection on how to improve the subject is provided.
