Is it possible to provide additional information regarding the content of the course? Does the course have a real-situation exercise component?

More information about course content can be found in the training guide (also attached). Every in-person workshop has a thorough demonstration of teaching techniques and class activities as well as a practicum session so that trainees have the experience of designing exercises, teaching them to the training group, and receiving feedback throughout.
