I am thinking of organising an introductory course on LaTeX for my colleagues in the philosophy department. I'm wondering what kind of resources are available for teaching LaTeX. And a related question, what are the best ways to motivate interest in LaTeX? (Word's Equation Editor does a lot of good work converting people to LaTeX, but for people who don't do much techy stuff, I want to show what LaTeX is capable of...)
I'm worried that a lot of my (self-taught) LaTeX knowledge is passive and I won't know what things I will need to teach at first.
Does anyone have any experience in doing this sort of thing? Are there good internet resources for this? (I cannot just assign the not-so-short guide as required reading for the course...)
