Category: Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH)
Runtime: 02:08:59
Description: The first in a series of four educational seminars featuring leaders in various areas of systems science. The purposes are to raise awareness of particularly promising methodologies; and improve our collective understanding about how and when they may be used effectively by behavioral and social scientists (including researchers, policy analysts, planners/evaluators, grant reviewers, journal editors and government officials).

This first symposium provides an introduction to and overview of the rest of the series. The core principles of system-oriented inquiry will be described, while briefly surveying a variety of methodological traditions and emerging directions in the field. John Sterman (Director, System Dynamics Group at MIT) will share his view of the field followed by Ken McLeroy (Associate Dean at Texas A&M and Department Editor for AJPH), who will explore further implications and assess the prospects for incorporating systems methodologies more fully into routine public health work.
