Portrait of Stewart Hunt
Experience: In addition to 20+ years of experience teaching mathematics, Mr. Hunt has programmed professionally using Java and Javascript.
Teaching Approach: "It is much more important that a valid method was used to solve a problem than it is that the answer is right. Humans are not computers and silly mistakes are easy to make. I care more about the idea than minutia."
Education: Master's Degree, Mathematics, Purdue University

Portrait of Robert Jersak
Experience: Robert Jersak has been teaching Communication coursework in the Minnesota State college and university system for over 15 years. His professional areas of interest and study include cross-cultural empathy, deliberative dialogue and audio documentary interviewing. He is currently pursuing a certificate in documentary studies at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University in Durham, NC. Robert has also taught storytelling, creative writing and podcasting workshops across the Twin Cities metro area.
Teaching Approach: "I believe that Communication Studies is a field of praxis - with roots in the Humanities and the Social Sciences - and that all students benefit from an understanding of theory as well as how these theories actually function in our personal and professional lives. That means that I'm always learning as I teach, and that my students are often teaching me (and others) as they learn. I believe in support, guidance, mentoring and potentially-transformative active learning experiences."
Education: MA, Communication Studies, Minnesota State University - Mankato
