Introduction to the course topics:
This Workshop in Systems Thinking is an approach to understand complex issues better. The aim is to empower participants to change a system (e.g. a scientific working environment) in such a way, that it becomes fairer, more sustainable or more effective, for example. Systems Thinking is an attitude, a mindset and a way of thinking and offers different tools to understand complex situations in living and working systems and helps to deal with uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. In this Workshop we aim to get a first idea of „Systems Thinking“ and its impact for our work as PhD students and maybe future teamlead by looking at: (course aims).
- Systemic diagnosis - Diagnose complex sustainability challenges using systemic approaches
- Strategy design - Design system change strategies and interventions
- Collaboration and engagement - seek, initiate, build and facilitate partnerships and coalitions for change
- Leadership and learning - Learn and lead into complex and uncertain future
Teaching Methods: We will work with theories, models, simulations in a very active way, understanding our own connectedness in the systems inside the classroom and outside. Also: scientific input, work in goups, (own-)research, coaching-elements, peer-coaching & reflection, collegial advice
Participation requirements: None.
Technical requirements: None
Other information, notes: None.
