More generally (in the scope of PLT), I've found the following resources 
very helpful:

http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/492 (and the root site)

Obviously, they haven't been organised into a course.

So far, as an undergraduate student, the books I've found most 
accessible & helpful in this area have been SICP, PLAI, EOPL, Lisp In 
Small Pieces, Programming Language Pragmatics and the Dragon book.

Disclaimer: I've no experience teaching or designing curriculum, or much 
experience designing and implementing compilers/interpreters.
