The instructor pilot stated that the student was to stay on the controls with him while he executed the landing. After a normal landing, slightly left of center line, the aircraft "veered to the left and ran off of the runway." He further stated that he applied full right rudder; however, the aircraft continued across the grass. The nose wheel sank into the soft ground in a ditch and the airplane nosed over, coming to rest in the inverted position.
