The main teaching method is hands-on, to have you learn by doing. By experiencing the very things you are learning about, your knowledge and understanding become greater and more valid. And you are far more likely to remember something after you’ve seen it applied in real life. Classes are conducted in a free and open spirit, progressing through interactions and dialogues between students and teachers.
