No worries. Let me copy my reply to everyone if that's alright Juan :-)

Basically at the beginning of each cycle now for several cycles, we as a 
team take time to host a series of classroom sessions, or workshops to 
instruct people on specific topics.

So for example, Javier gave a session last cycle on bzr last cycle. You 
can see the log here:

Traditionally the instructor types out the information in an IRC channel 
and folks are able to then ask questions as he speaks. We are trying to 
emulate attending a class like at school, with an instructor and you 
attending as a student :-)

Topics have traditionally centered around skills needed for testing.
