The general sense of the face-to-face exemption seems to be that it applies
to regularly scheduled academic courses rather than either a)
extracurricular events or one or non-curricular training/education events
such as the one discussed below (staff development wouldn't ever hold
water, I'm pretty sure). That's the hard line...If it were me, I'd
probably take the risk and damn the infringement possibilities and forge
full speed ahead.
