Public Forum: Teaching and Learning as Complex Systems

  • January 14, 2014 · 5:00 PM

Learning is complex. Approaches and technologies that succeed in one context often fail to replicate or scale. This panel assembles international leaders in the philosophy of science, cognitive psychology, and computer science to help us think about improving learning research and instructional practice by considering features of complex systems.

    If anyone knows or is a creative Instructional Designer, I'd like to chat with them/you. I'm working on a start-up doing online health education and an interactive healthcare system. If you've got some entrepreneurial spirit and some expertise, please contact me.

      Hi Robert! I know a lot about health games and simulations and have always thought they can be incorporated into online courses. Let me know if this is something that sounds interesting to you.

      Hi Anuar, that sounds fantastic and I have had games in mind for a long time. I also have a baseline to form a game around. Let's talk.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
