- Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism.

I have also completed the following short courses which are relevant to the classes I teach here:

- How Forensic Science should speak to the Court;
- Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases (USA);
- An Introduction to American Law (USA);

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will provide worksheets to be submitted for feedback. They can either be submitted back to me as written work via the classroom or as a message, or if the learner prefers, they are welcome to present them in class if they prefer to speak rather than write.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will screen share Google Slides and I may, as applicable, screen share from YouTube.
Learners will not need to access the internet outside of Outschool during these classes.
