If you're having these issues you're doing it wrong. Multi-threaded code requires careful thought about how the threads, including the UI thread, will interact. It sounds to me like you're not thinking through thread interaction and just spending the time writing examples. If you want to teach this you must teach how to think about the problem first.

I've written applications that scale to the number of processors - no more, no less, and this scaling required zero changes in the code once properly implemented. The same goes for UI interactions. The reason this worked is because I thought about the inter-thread communications before writing a single line of production code. Yes, I tested several possible options before committing to a model, but that's part of the thought process.

Is multi-threaded code harder to write? By all means yes. Does this mean it needs to be super complex? Definitely not!
