What your students will learn?

The class gives its participants the opportunity to express their own view (and debate those of others) on current affairs and issues of interest.

Class structure?

We are an informal discussion group, usually in round table format.

Why did you volunteer to run this class?

The permanent tutor (Alan Clayton) went overeseas for a time and asked me to tutor in his absence. I look forward to discussing a range of local and international issues with the group, particularly hearing others’ diverse views.
