I am enrolled at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online working towards a Bachelor of Science in photography.
My other blog [blogspot.com]
About a week ago my supervisor told me that there is some interest in a Perl class among some of the Tier 3 resources (people who fix the code defects). She asked if I would be interested in teaching it. Of course, I said yes.
This week I had a meeting with my supervisor and one of the Tier 3 leads. It was decided that the class would be taught in four 3 hour sessions and that part of each session would be set aside for programming exercises. I recommended "Learning Perl" as the text.
I wrote up an outline right after the meeting that has me teaching the entire text. I have started writing my teaching plan as a series of (extended) lightning talks so that hopefully, I will have enough time left for questions and programming exercises.
I am not so sure that I can adequitely teach the class in the time allotted and still have the time needed for the exercises. I know that I can trim each chapter down but I am not sure which chapters should get the most emphasis. I am also not sure how many exercises to use for each chapter given that these are programmers and not total noobs.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Below you will find the outline as of right now.
Class::Learning::Perl - A class to teach Perl that uses ``Learning Perl'' as the foundation.
Given that we will be limited to four 3 hour blocks of instruction, I have broken down the book into managable pieces. The class will cover the cornerstones of Perl knowledge while touching on some of the more advanced topics.
