After studying this course, you should be able to:
implement an action learning framework for exploring complex situations
recognise that the way we engage with the world is through partial models of reality, and that these models are limited by different cognitive styles and ‘thinking traps’
understand the need to collaboratively incorporate a blend of cognitive styles and multiple intelligences as the basis for effective systems practice and thinking
appreciate how different modes of communication (verbal, visual and mathematical) affect the way we represent our mental models
develop verbal, visual and mathematical models that explore both social and natural impacts, and reflect on the use of such models to inform thoughts and actions.
