E. Hehner has a course called "Formal Methods for Software Design", which he presents completely openly online (including video lectures, a textbook, solutions, and so on): http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~hehner/FMSD/

I really liked it.

I also liked R. Backhouse's approach to it, encapsulated in two books:

1) less playful: http://www.amazon.com/Program-Construction-Calculating-Imple...

2) more playful: http://www.amazon.com/Algorithmic-Problem-Solving-Roland-Bac...

I found Dijkstra's stuff to be easier to read after I had read books by Hehner/Backhouse, even though chronologically, Dijkstra came first.
