  • @hudali15 I don't know how you missed it either! I find our SA guidelines really helpful and like to create them this way because then I can really focus and I have found others can too.

  • Dear Sally, I do not how I missed this great and thoughtful presentation. I like the systemic approach and the build up of ideas. Creative questioning is the building block for learning. All the questions you offer are in this direction.
