I'm going to send you something separate that I have but I haven't 
checked the content fully to make sure I can publish it on the OSGeo edu 
inventory page.

Yes, it would. This relates to our discussion about developing some 
OSGeo curriculum material. This next week, I'm going to send out a call 
on the OSGeo edu list to see if we can hold one or more online 
discussions about how to move in this direction. I'm also going to try 
and get some funding to hold, sometime in the next year, a face-to-face 
workshop for some of us to meet and work on a curriculum. Anyone 
interested in joining this please subscribe to the OSGeo education and 
curriculum list.
