Illustrator or InDesign Training for an Undergraduate-level Typography Course

For an undergraduate-level college course on typography, would you recommend teaching Illustrator or InDesign to the students? I only have enough class time for one of them in addition to the rest of the typography-specific instruction that I want to include. InDesign is great for teaching page layout while Illustrator is great for teaching typographic composition and typeface design. I would appreciate the thoughts of other educators on the topic as I develop my curriculum.
