something that 'normal' sql users will be interested in:
2. triggers
3. cursors
4. stored procedures
5. indexes

a bit advanced topic might be 'query optimization'.

There are so many different native sql languages in the market, like Jet-SQL, T-SQL, PL/SQL etc, here are some of their references:

How about a restatement of the principles of SQL (i.e. set theory / boolean algebra...) and some worked examples, you could provide examples of implementations in different 'flavours' (i.e. Oracle SQL, SQL Server) if that would be of interest to your audience.

Alternatively, depending on the environment you use, look at some of the new directions that SQL is taking (in its broadest sense), for example Oracle PLSQL Pages, SQL's application to OLAP databases etc....

How about the rules of data normalization?  If I had a million dollars for every bad database table layout I have seen that broke every or most of the first 3 rules of normalization I would be richer than Bill Gates.  Well maybe not Bill Gates, but at least I would be rich! ;)
