Program

Program (Curriculum) with Tracks and Classes, Version 3.0
 
        We have been developing the APSIG Program since September 2015 as the two-year project in 2015~2017.
        We target APSIG courses to Internet governance experts and leaders.
        We have 15 Core Classes (indicated in bold characters), and 18 additional classes now. 
        Each class consists of 30-45 minutes lecture followed by 45-60 minutes discussion.  
        We also offer various sessions; hot topic sessions, case study sessions, lightning talk sessions and BoF sessions.
        We would like to have two or more lecturers in each class' lecture pool.

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 general courses 
           for Internet governance practitioners and/or introductory courses. 
Memo on advanced course vs introductory course is provided for clarification.
