Another good point; there are general 3d knowledge - common for all 3d  
programs - and there's Blender skills (knowing how to apply the  
general 3d skills in Blender).

Personally I wouldn't demand students to learn the IOR table by heart  

A good research topic would be if general 3d knowledge and training is  
already available freely... or if we can invite someone to free that  
up. A good generic 3d doc + course material (independent of 3d  
program) is a great target as well.
