Python Advocacy Kit for University Educators

The intent of this page is to collect ideas on what should be included in such a kit. Elsewhere, we are soliciting flyers and whitepapers which when finished will be used to make up advocacy kits.

Suppose you're a professor at a university and you'd like to adopt Python in the classroom. Perhaps you're teaching programming or perhaps you're teaching physics, chemistry or some other topic and know that Python can give students the modeling and analysis tools gain further insight. What materials would you need to make that happen?

This wiki page is a collection point - we will later relocate, organize with other related content and write abstracts about them so that others can find them more easily.

There is quite a mix of whitepapers above because it isn't possible to guess which topics the educator is teaching. But by providing them all in a kit, the inside advocate can select those appropriate to his university.

For active discussion on advocating the use of Python, please join the Advocacy mailing list and visit the Advocacy - Get Involved! site.
