42827 Introduction to Participatory Modelling

Anti-requisite(s): 42085 Modelling for Complex Systems


Participatory modelling (PM) is a powerful tool which takes the most from collective knowledge of the stakeholders and interactive simulation modelling techniques aiming at finding better solutions for the complex problems. Learning is a crucial component of participatory modelling because as the stakeholders exchange their perspectives, they learn from each other, which leads to the development of shared, more holistic understanding of the problem and, consequently, to more feasible solutions. In this subject students learn the techniques of Participatory Modelling (PM). They learn how to engage with stakeholders, and how to avoid or overcome any pitfalls when using the techniques of PM.
