Behind Closed Gates - Paper from the 2015 System Dynamics Conference
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, & Lees Stuntz Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE), conducted at Stanford University by Philip Zimbardo in 1971 is a powerful example of seeing how people respond in highly stressful situations in which one individual or group has power over another. Although this type of experiment no longer meets the ethical standards for human study, the learning that has resulted impacts current understanding and, in some cases, decisions about how to structure systems, such as penal institutions.
Assessing the Effectiveness of Systems-Oriented Instruction for Preparing Students to Understand Complexity
Author(s): Richard Randall Plate Subject: Research
  Dissertation for Ph.D. This research presents systems-oriented instruction as a promising pedagogical tool for preparing students to understand complex social and ecological systems. A methodology is presented using cognitive mapping to evaluate how systems-oriented instruction affects the way students learn about complex systems.
An Introduction to Feedback (D-4691)
Author(s): Leslie Martin Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. Feedback is the process through which a signal travels through a chain of causal relations to re-affect itself. This paper will reinforce the general theory of feedback with multiple different examples in the form of exercises, which will involve the reader in making the distinction between positive and negative feedback. From Road Maps 2.
A Systems View of Natural Processes: Teaching Physics the System Dynamics Way
Author(s): Hans Fuchs Subject: Science
  The discussion of an approach to a systems form of physics instruction, the Continuum Physics Paradigm.
A System Dynamics Approach to Rabbits (S-shaped growth) (D-4286)
Author(s): Terri Duhon Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. This paper studies S-shaped growth by examining the behavior of a rabbit population. Shows and explains a complete system dynamics model constructed for STELLA.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. This paper can be used in conjunction with the Oscillations curriculum, particularly Lessons 3A, B or C on logistic growth. This progression of lessons will help students understand that undesirable behavior can be a consequence of system structure and not a result of outside, uncontrollable influences. In other words, a system that oscillates does so because it has an inherent tendency to do so.
A Skeptic's Guide to Computer Models (D-4101-1)
Author(s): John D. Sterman Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. A detailed description of computer modeling and of the advantages and limitations of several types of models, this paper examines some modeling techniques, focusing on their assumptions and possible implications of their application in foresight and policy making. From Road Maps 9.
