Self censorship: most powerful?
WATCH Waleed Aly present on Free Speech
Australia – we don’t actually have a bill of rights that protects free speech – key difference from America – so a bit of a grey area, since we do not have specific legislation to protect!!
Free Speech after Charlie Hebdo:
Hagerstrand’s three human constraints… and carpool karaoke with FLOTUS

TIPS ON PEER TEACHING
The main things I would suggest
- a variety of activities
- things you can do in small groups – and hopefully have students talk to one another – try to make it interactive.

- LOOK AT THE COURSE OUTLINE – lots of resources with ideas! Here are a few more:
