A bit more about these classes: 

- XML Basics, October 9 - 11, 2012
 Intended for people who have an interest in textual documents, such 
 as writers, editors, and programmers with HTML or typesetting 
 experience, this class focuses on use of XML with text. By the end 
 of the class, participants will have created a valid XML document, 
 corrected well-formedness and validity errors, written a DTD, and 
 will understand the differences between XML DTDs, the W3C XML Schema, 
 and RELAX NG (although none of the schema languages are covered in depth).

- Introduction to Schematron, October 12, 2012
Schematron is a tool for finding things out about XML documents. It is 
used to check things that may be valid but that are often incorrect and 
to report on the status of a document or document collection. Participants 
learn to use Schematron to identify both the presence and absence of data  
and patterns, and are introduced to some of the more complex things one 
can write with Schematron. In addition, participants learn enough XPath to  
get started with Schematron.

- XSLT/XPath Basics, October 22 - 24, 2012
 XSLT, the non-procedural language for transforming XML into other data formats, 
 and XPath, its companion specification for identifying parts of XML documents, 
 are widely used to convert XML data into other data formats, including: display 
 forms such as HTML, database load formats, and XML according to other DTDs. This 
 class teaches the principles and practice of XSLT/XPath. Centered around the 
 abstract data model of XML, students learn to create and prioritize templates; 
 use expressions, patterns, and functions to select nodes and create output; 
 and create elements, attributes, processing instructions, and comments in their 

- Introduction to XForms, November 8-9, 2012
 This course introduces XForms as a technology for building
 special-purpose XML editors with focused functionality and
 correspondingly simple user interfaces. XForms is built on the
 model / view / controller idiom, in which the 'model' is a set of
 XML documents, the 'view' is specified using XHTML and XForms
 widgets, and the 'controller' takes the form of declarative links
 between widgets and elements or attributes in the XML documents.

- XQuery for Documents, November 13-14, 2012
 This course introduces XQuery as a flexible language for working
 with natural-language documents (books, prose, verse, drama,
 correspondence, historical documents, articles, legislation, etc.)
 encoded in XML. The focus is on the application of XQuery to
 textual material with complex and variable structure, as opposed to
 the typically simpler, more regular structures of data-oriented
 XML.  The course will cover XPath location paths, atomic values,
 sequences of values, the XDM data model, FLWOR expressions,
 function declarations, regular expressions and string manipulation,
 collections, and the full-text extensions to XQuery.
