Abstract for: A Taxonomy of System Dynamics Pedagogic Techniques

A number of papers have been published describing various pedagogic techniques for the dissemination of the System Dynamics (SD) approach at various Education institutions and academic levels ranging from schools (K-12 in the US) to higher education. This paper builds on previous papers by this author that provided a partial catalogue and classification of this work in order to highlight potential areas of research in this field of study and to identify system archetypes at different hierarchical levels and discover new ones. This paper therefore presents taxonomy of System Dynamics Pedagogic Techniques. This paper builds on the earlier taxonomy by widening the scope of the survey of SD Pedagogic Techniques. The findings from these investigations are briefly described. The taxonomy classifies the completed investigations into specific areas of concern and hierarchical levels.
