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..
