Re: Workshops and Courses

Postby Stefano Armenia » Fri May 09, 2014 4:56 am

Hi all,

this might be an additional nice opportunity to present some SD & ST related work here in Europe (I will be the Track Chair for the System Dynamics & Systems Thinking Track), which also preludes to the opportunity to publish the best track papers into a special issue (see details below and here: http://bslab-symposium.net/3rd-internat ... rtunities/) of the Int. J. of Applied Systemic Studies (IJASS), of which I will be the Guest Editor.

Please disseminate as most appropriately deemed.

Best regards,
Stefano Armenia

This course is ideal if you are new to Strategy Dynamics and want to see both how it works and the powerful insights and impact it can offer. The course consists of videos, exercises and models in the "Introductory Strategy Dynamics" course, plus live online sessions with Kim Warren and group discussion (see http://www.sdl.re/sdcourse).

Learn SD Modeling to Address Nat'l Standards-Math & Science

Postby Roberta Spencer » Fri Apr 11, 2014 6:58 am

Learn System Dynamics Modeling to Address National Standards in Math and Science
An Online Professional Development Opportunity by Diana M. Fisher

A sequence of three online courses teaching System Dynamics (SD) modeling for math and science instructors (of students ages 15 – 20+) has been developed. These courses provide extensive hands-on model building activities for the participants that can then be modified (or used as-is) for their students. The model-building lessons have been tested in a classroom setting.

The three courses are:
1. Introduction to System Dynamics Modeling for Math and Science Instructors: Course 1: Basic Models
2. Introduction to System Dynamics Modeling for Math and Science Instructors: Course 2: More Advanced Models
3. System Dynamics Modeling: A Different Way to Think: Course 3: Building Original Models from the News

Each course consists of 10 sessions and will be capped at 15 participants. The sequence of courses provides a gentle introduction to SD modeling for those instructors who are new to system dynamics, but who appreciate the learning opportunities such modeling can provide for their students.

Dates: The first course will be offered starting June 24, 2014 and last for 10 consecutive weeks. The first course will also be offered starting in mid-September 2014 and last for 20 weeks, allowing participants more time to complete assignments because they will have returned to their teaching responsibilities.

Credit option: Each course has a 3-credit option attached, awarded by the Curriculum and Instruction Department at Portland State University.

Cost: The cost for the course is $570 without credit and $750 with 3 credits.

If you are interested please contact Diana Fisher at dfisher@ccmodelingsystems.com
