Speaking as one who does not teach CS - but who hired many college CS graduates over the years and also observed the trend to outsourcing to Asia increase dramatically - I'd say one key thing you need to decide is whether or not the course will be "an introduction to computer programming concepts" or an "introduction to programming for AP level credit." Both are certainly needed - but the relative level of emphasis between Alice and Java will differ depending on your goals.

And may I also wish you success in your new course.
