Glenn B. Rust

Glenn believes that the best development of new skills and new work comes from a combination of discussion and hands on work. He breaks his class days down into three sections: Introduction where the concept to be discussed for the day is explained. Exercise where students work to implement this concept with him present to assist when needed. Discussion where the work developed is presented and discussed with the group as a whole to understand what can be learned from the experience and improved upon in the future.
