|SUBJECT ||Subject: [hangout] Teaching Stipents
Secondary to a number of discussions around the educational inititive
and the Free Software Institute, a number of times it has come up that
we need to look at stipents for the those teaching, and find ways to
reward people for teaching, which is VERY labor intessive.
The Perl Class was given at 150 dollars per student over 10 weeks, and
we have about 15 students and generated about $3000 in income.
On a more extensive program, we might be able to run 2 classes in
parallel and give a stipent to teachers of about $500 dollars. But even
this has come under fire as being not enough.
I'm not certain about this. Here is what I was considering. In addition
to the deveopment of a low cost ciriculum for folks to learn about Free
Software development and administration, I envisioned a corperate
training Annex to NYLXS where people can teach and get paid full rate
in addition to the onsite classes. We also need to provide corperate
services through our affiliation of consultant.
Clearly nobody wants to starve. But clearly we will if we don't provide
leadership training and development in an accessable fashion.
