System dynamics design labs will provide an introduction to system dynamics for students, faculty, and local community partners by working through a set of experiential small group model building exercises. System Dynamics (SD) is a method for understanding complex systems and identifying potential high leverage solutions and provides a foundation for rigorous systems thinking. Each design lab will focus on a specific issue impacted by recent events in collaboration with CWRU faculty. Students will have the option to participate in one or more skill labs depending on schedules. The four issues being discussed are:

  1. Scaling up a machine learning based delirium intervention for older adults 
  2. The childcare crisis
  3. The opioid crisis
  4. The housing crisis
