MIT System Dynamics in Education Project (SDEP)
The System Dynamics in Education Project (SDEP) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a group dedicated promoting and teaching system dynamics and learner-centered learning in education. System dynamics is a method for studying the world around us. It deals with understanding how complex systems change over time, and how internal feedback loops within the structure of the system influence the entire system behavior. The main project of SDEP is Road Maps, a series of guides which utilize modeling exercizes and selected literature to provide a self-study system for learning the methods and principles of system dynamics.
