Does anyone know of any resources for TEACHERS of technical communication
subjects, such as technical writing, technical editing, and other related
topics (ISO, SGML/HTML, Usability, Audience Analysis, online Help, etc.)?

I need the perspective of the teacher. How to best *explain* these topics to
students, with examples, exercises, tests, etc. I haven't even been able to
find any books designed for teachers. The only one I found was one in the
"For Dummies" series called **Windows '95 for Teachers - The A+ Reference
for Teachers**. It's good but definitely not enough for my purposes. I teach
Technical Writing and Technical Editing at a local university and would like
to upgrade my courses with fresh material. I also teach introductory courses
(Windows, MS-Office, Internet/Web, etc.) in other schools.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
