The main goal of
– as expected from its name –
trying to help improve our

Education for Problem Solving

where a problem is any opportunity to make things better,
problem solving happens when we do make it better,
and education is learning from experiences in life.

How?  Through a collaborative process
of working with other educators,
using creative ideas developed by them
and by me (Craig Rusbult, PhD)
during my life on a road less traveled.

        I've written a wide variety of web-pages you can explore
        if you're curious, as described in a wallet-card summary:
                I want to work with other educators, developing
             strategies & activities to help people improve their
             problem-solving skills. Some ideas for doing this –
             by learning from experience, building bridges from
             school into life, using inquiry & metacognition, ... –
             plus musical improvisation, science for art & sport,
             juggling, how I didn't learn to ski (+ other stories,
             including My Life on a Road Less Traveled), and
             Satchel Paige Age, using prayer for better living,
             and more,* are in [the page you're now reading].
             [* including new pages about new homes for items
             and my dog and (finally back in Madison!) myself. ]

        Below are links to some pages I've written.  I recommend that
        you first READ the list to see the topics, then (if you want)
        go back and CLICK links for any pages that look interesting.

        Building Educational Bridges between School and Life
            (to improve student confidence, motivations, transfers)
        is part of my Education for Problem Solving website,  with
        logical Action Diagrams (simple & symmetric) for strategies to
        improve creative-and-critical Design Thinking  {@DTprocess}
        plus Accurate Understanding & Respectful Attitudes & more.
        Also, stories (welding, not-skiing, joy,...) and my influences &
        learning from experience & kindness + empathy & edu-topics
        and why so many people loved & respected my sister, Caryl.

        Using Prayer for Problem Solving (for living more effectively)
             as described in Bible Verses about What-and-How in Life ;
        how Louis said yes to God & forgiving, to become Unbroken.

        Thinking Skills: Problem Solving - Creativity - Critical Thinking
        (including the “Monday and Tuesday” of an influential teacher),
        Musical Improvisation & Theory and Power Tools for Physics 
        and how I didn't learn to ski (but then did, by using an insight)
        and learned to juggle (in 12 yr, 45 min) & swim (in 5 seconds),
        returning to tennis in 2021 (with two-handed strokes on L & R);
        my PhD Dissertation (with huge ToC) about Scientific Method,
        and Whole-Person Education to Integrate Science & Faith {big
        website for organization of Christian scientists;  I made “travel
        pages” for 12 of our meetings, in Chicago  LA  elsewhere} and
        Proton Warring & Wooing by Active Bases (acids are passive)
        and Understanding Einstein's Theory of Relativity in 5 Minutes;
        teaching labs & ESL & Ballroom Dancing-Transfers & Juggling
        plus a Juggling Video-and-Photos    (Arts & Sports)    my CV ,
        younger Satchel Paige Age (he asked “how old do you feel?”
            and this is much younger than my actual 73, because I'm
            trying to “live healthy” to slow down my rate of slowdown)
            and my sports (tennis, football,... and Anteater Olympiad) ,
        making bamboo flutes  +  Science of Art & Sport , and more –
        singles ministries (Online-plus-InPerson, to help people meet),
        a youtube channel for my juggling/dancing & joyfully cute dog,
        plus finding good homes for my fluffy-and-happy doggy and
        for house-items so I could give away more, throw away less
        and for me with a great new home in my old city - Madison ,
