DSLR 101 filter: thinking of offering a class to people who have invested in a DSLR camera, but are used to point-and-shoots. What do you wish you knew when you first bought / played around with a DSLR - or - what do you want to know about working with a DSLR?

The question above says it all - that said, I'd be interested in hearing your take on what a DSLR 101 course should cover:
How did you go about learning the basics of your DSLR? Youtube, camera manual, a kind friend, a class, etc.?
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you first got your DSLR?
Was the science / physics behind things more interesting, or was it just nice to have more control over what you wanted a picture of?
Assuming you're still shooting with a DSLR, what equipment beyond the kit lens was your first major purchase?
