Abstract for: Fearless Use of System Dynamics in Education – How You Can Make a Difference!
For twenty years, individual system dynamicists and educators from around the world have guided students to thinking deeply about complex, systemic issues and potential high leverage action. How can you work within your community to develop relationships within educational settings and share system dynamics resources and expertise as well as learn from interactions within these settings? This session will provide: • stories of how system dynamicists and teachers have interacted and learned from one another while working to build capacity and resources for classroom use. • packets of useful materials, available at cost, with specific recommendations for starting conversations with interested educators and sharing resources. • conversation to identify next steps for you to take within your community and to ascertain what support structures need to be set up to carry the work forward.
