About the Instructor
After finishing graduate school, Ed accepted a job with Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). His main job was problem solver. About five years after he started with the company, he was trained to be a recruiter. His experiences at ICI as a scientist and a recruiter convinced him that the best way he could contribute to humanity was as an educator teaching problem solving skills. After eleven years at ICI, he became a professor of physics at Baldwin Wallace University in 2000. In 2002, Baldwin Wallace became the first University on the planet to offer for-credit courses in problem solving.
