Web-Sim Fishbanks Session/Workshop

Post by Aldo Zagonel » Sat Aug 23, 2014 9:42 am

MIT Sloan's Jason Jay will conduct a Web-Sim Fishbanks Session/Workshop in São Paulo, Brazil, for the purpose of rolling out the Portuguese version of the simulator and materials. The purpose of this event is to attract a variety of participants from business, government and academia, representing several institutions, including outside of São Paulo, as well as to provide opportunity to Brazil Chapter members to learn how to facilitate the game.

The event will be held on September 12 at the Federal University of the State of São Paulo (UNIFESP), Osasco Campus, in the greater metropolitan area, per announcement/invitation attached.

The Brazil Chapter is thankful to Dennis Meadows, John Sterman and everyone else involved in making Fishbanks available on the Web, free of charge, via MIT's Learning Edge: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/P ... fault.aspx, with a special thanks to the MIT alum who anonymously provided translation to Portuguese.

110 professionals, educators, and students from more than 30 organizations participated in the Web-Sim Fishbanks simulation lab held at the Federal University of the State of São Paulo, on September 12, 2014. The event was organized by João Arantes, of UNIFESP, and facilitated by Jason Jay, of MIT's Sloan School of Management. It included representatives from Brazil's Ministry of Environment, State of São Paulo Department of Education, consulting companies, and professors and students from some of the most prestigious universities in Brazil, as well as educators from two local high-schools. The Brazilian Chapter, under the leadership of Marciano Morozowski, promoted the event in partnership with MIT's Learning Edge (https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/P ... fault.aspx).

This simulation lab, and an upcoming SD symposium, on December 4, 2014 (to be hosted by Edmilson Moraes at FEI University Center; http://fei.edu.br/sbds/index.html), are evidence of the growing interest in the method and its applications, following on the footsteps of a first symposium, held in 2004, and two regional conferences, in 2006 and 2011. (We have Pierre Ehrilich, Niraldo Nascimento and Ricardo Chaim, respectively, to thank for these earlier efforts.)
