  1. This is vey useful. This is the kind of resource I would have used in a graduate seminar, but alas, I don’t think such happens much these days as attention has switched to technology. Nothing like this ever shows up at ISPI.

    Therefore, I would love to see a virtual set of forums begin with such as this. I would start by asking what is the role of problem identification and clarity? Deductive vs. inductive problem solving…

    Good stuff, thanks.
