The first thing about education (pedagogy 101 although I never sat on 
such a course) is to think about your students and your goals. That's 
the hard part also: what you should teach and how? Probably the thing 
the education committee (eh, I'm in it also) should first do is define 
skill/knowledge levels on some a bit more general level.
