Simon Badger's lecture:

For a more formal overview of scattering amplitudes in (supersymmetric) gauge theories and gravity

And here is an approach from the fixed-order side:

http://arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:1411.4085

I am planning though to approach the problem differently this time. After introducing the basics I will try and make a connection to resummation, similar to https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.03497

 - I'll  borrow heavily from my work with Kirill and Fabrizio: Caola, Melnikov, Röntsch, Eur. Phys. J. C77 (2017) 248 [hep-ph/1702.01352]. The second lecture on FKS subtraction will follow section 3 of this paper very closely, and the third lecture will include parts of sections 4 and 8.

 - The calculation of soft and collinear limits: Catani and Grazzini, Nucl. Phys. B570 (2000) 287. [hep-ph/9706545]

 - The original FKS papers: Frixione, Kunszt, Signer Nucl. Phys. B467 (1996) 399 [hep-ph/9512328];   Frixione, Nucl. Phys. B507 (1997) 295 [hep-ph/9706545] -- although, as I said, my discussion of FKS will follow our paper rather than these references.

 - It might also be useful if students were at least aware of the Catani formula for calculating IR poles of virtual amplitudes: Catani, Phys. Lett. B427(1998) 161 [hep-ph/9802439]

 - Residue-improved sector decomposition: Czakon, Phys. Lett. B693 (2010) 259 [hep-ph/1005.0274] and Czakon, Nucl. Phys. B849 (2011) 250 [hep-ph/1101.0642]

 - QCD and Collider Physics (Ellis, Stirling and Webber), chapter 4.3

I should also say that I'm trying to make the lectures as self-contained as possible, so none of these references are really essential, although of course consulting them will be useful for the students.
