Thanks to Sia, Dominik and Anil - the PhD committee at the WSL - I was able to teach a two hour long introduction to git and github, including demonstrations with bash and by linking github to an R project on RStudio. After the two hours, all students managed to set up their own repository and link to an R project, all of them were successful in committing and pushing to the repositories. I'm very happy on how active and successful all the students were. Congratulations! Link to the github course repository, to the github page and to the lecture presentation.
