In several previous monthly meetings, we've had a lot of fruitful discussion and interaction, some of which has led to innovative collaboration among SIG members. This month we would like to highlight these successes and propel our collaboration forward with a roundtable discussion/open forum on teaching and learning System Dynamics in Ag & Food contexts. Below is a tentative agenda/topics of conversation. We look forward to seeing everyone there next week! 

Date: Thursday, October 29
Time: 10:00 AM U.S. Central Time
Email [email protected] for Zoom Meeting details 

Agenda:
5-10 minutes: COVID-19 collaborative project update by Team Leader, Dr. Busra Atamer.  

50-55 minutes: Discussion on teaching and learning SD (sample topics include)

  • when teaching SD in Ag&Food circles, what has worked and what hasn't?
  • what SD resources have been most helpful to your learning and/or teaching experience?
  • For Ag&Food systems courses, what are the most relevant learning objectives and how can we/should we get students there?
  • Besides the class simulation games (Beer Game, Fish Banks, Peoples Express, etc) what other games if any do you use in teaching/learning? What would make an effective simulation game for Ag&Food classes and studies?
