Weekly WPI System Dynamics Digest: Keeping people in the loop

Post by Administrator »

Hello, WPI SD Mailing List.[/size]

Feel free to share this digest. Colleagues can self-subscribe to this mailing list using the button below:

Thank you to those who attended the Collective Learning Meeting (CLM) this past Friday. We did not record; however, will share Prof. David Lane's https://mcusercontent.com/d707eac63c530 ... elated.pdf paper which addresses many of the topics in his presentation and some of the discussion. We discussed inequality, Prof. Kate Raworth's Donut Economics, transportation, teaching, gaming, the role of religion, influencers, and activism, http://donellameadows.org/global-citizens-columns/ and more. Prof. Radzicki shared Professors Gönenç Yücel and Yaman Barlas' https://doi.org/10.1016/j.techfore.2009.11.004 paper.

Side note: The Forrester quote "don't do something, just stand there" in Prof. Lane's paper reminded me of Dr. Tom Fiddaman's https://metasd.com/ "Don't just do something, stand there!"

The WPI System Dynamics CLMs for next semester will be on Fridays 3PM - 4PM ET (Boston time). Check the tentative schedule, http://bit.ly/CLM-Guideline-Spring-2021 (for presenters and participants) and requirements (recording is optional) in the link below:
