Abstract for: From Teaching System Dynamics Towards Total Immersion in Advanced Model-Based Policy Analysis

In this paper, we discuss (i) important lessons related to the latest innovations in our case-based blended System Dynamics education, and (ii) the redesign of our Masters programs in which System Dynamics plays an important role. Instead of teaching System Dynamics 101, supervising System Dynamics projects, teaching Advanced System Dynamics, and supervising System Dynamics theses, we will from 2016 on integrate our System Dynamics courses with other modelling courses, raise the required level from intermediate to advanced with intensive workshops, and embed our Masters students in real modelling and simulation projects. Finally, our most recent teaching and testing cases are included in the appendix.
