Program (Curriculum) with Tracks and Classes
 
        We have been developing the APSIG Program since September 2015 as the two-year project in 2015~2017.
        We target APSIG classes to Internet governance experts and leaders.
        We have 15 Core Classes (indicated in bold characters), and 9 Other Classes (indicated in non-bold characters) in 7 Tracks 
        as well as 6 Candidate Classes. Each class consists of 30-45 minutes lecture followed by 45-60 minutes discussion.  
        A Hot Topic Class/Session, a Case Study Session, a Lighting Talk Session, a Workshop and/or a Role Play Class may be offered additionally.

Remarks:
         - The Program is primarily designed for 4~6 day schools with advanced classes.  If a mini-school for 2~3 days is to be offered, it may be necessary
           to modify tracks,
 and/or classes.
         - There are three levels of courses; advanced, general, and introductory.  APSIG offers the advanced course, and national SIGs
 offer a general course
           for Internet governance practitioners and/or an introductory course. 
Memo on advanced course vs introductory course is provided for clarification.
