This is interesting, and a larger issue I think. I don't know if this
can be driven from the outside..

Also useful information, since this means you probably can't structure
the training around a particular project. (IMO, this is a powerful
approach, since you can assume a shared vocabulary and knowledge of the
"problem domain" amond all the students. This avoids the cognitive
burden of fake projects, fake clients, etc and acts as a natural filter
on class content.)
Since your people are involved in a variety of different projects, it's
probably best to stick to a more formal curriculum (a.k.a. "one size
fits all"). I don't know where you'd find such a thing, though of
course it could be cobbled together.
I'm sorta wondering if we could put together a tag-team, "teach in"
kind of thing..
