Teaching Open Source development requires Open Source ways. I teach at Seneca College in Toronto, and we’ve been teaching inside the Mozilla community for the last three years with some very good results (I’ll be talking about this at OLS in a few weeks).
I’m really excited about combining two of my passions this fall: teaching Open Source, and working with the Fedora project. The LUX program will take students with an existing diploma, degree, or industry experience into the Fedora project over the course of a year, enabling them to experience open source from the inside. I’ll periodically blog about our experience here, and if you’re interested in following along, I recommend subscribing to the opensource@seneca planet.
