EDL 762 - Systems Thinking

Credits: Three (3)
This course will explore the tenants of systems thinking as the framework for developing a working knowledge of the concepts and practical tools of organizational growth and development within a school district. The focus is fostering aspiration, developing reflective conversation, and understanding complexity. Systems thinking explores the world as it is and challenges students to expand their capacity to create the outcomes they seek for their schools, districts, and education in the future. This includes addressing current issues with a focus on equity, diversity, school safety, and personalized learning. Students will be engaged in activities and learning experiences using a variety of methods including, but not limited to, small and large group dialogue, authentic problem solving experiences, and simulations designed to meet the students’ needs and spur professional growth.
