He has made slides with explanatory comments available: Teaching Spatial Concepts with GIS: Design as Method

From Jeff’s blog:

On March 24, 2009, I presented these comments at the 2009 AAG Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of a panel discussion titled “Spatial Concepts and Curriculum for GIS and Design.” I connected ideas from the Specialist Meeting on Spatial Concepts in GIS and Design to the GIS curriculum at Middlebury College.
