My take:

If we can get a 3+ hour block (workshop): Barcamp format. I'm happy to 
facilitate but will need a hand on the logistics.

If we can't do that, but can get a 75-minute block (special session): 

If we can get a shorter session: 

Theme for all 3 sessions might be something like "how students want to 
be prepared for the real world" -- something that gives students 
expertise by virtue of *being* students (and forces us to shut up and 
listen to them for a while!) and is a strong point of open source 
participation, but is not exclusively focused on open source.

Fire at will. Modifications, better ideas, criticisms? What needs to 
happen next to get this on a schedule, in whatever format?
