Abstract

In the system dynamics field there is a rich literature on participatory system dynamics / group model building and a rich literature on teaching students system dynamics. However, these two have not yet been combined and there is a lack of insights on using participatory system dynamics in a teaching context. This paper starts to close this gap by reporting two examples of participatory system dynamics teaching. It discusses the purposes of such kind of teaching, relating it to the different components of teaching participatory modelling vs. using a participatory process to teach system dynamics concepts as well as the learning objectives related to participatory process vs. model content vs. system dynamics insights.
