The System Dynamics Society’s Transport Special Interest Group (T-SIG) organizes its lecture series on qualitative modelling as a participatory approach to transport system analysis. The series of four lectures starts in November 2022, running until February 2023.
The participation is free of charge and open to all.
Lecture #1: Group Model Building and Lego Serious Play: Transport Identities and Innovation (November 8th 2022)
By Dr Gillian Harrison & Dr Stefania Romano
(University of Leeds)
In this session we will present the outcomes of a ‘proof-of-concept’ workshop where we combined Lego© Serious Play and Causal Loop Diagram group model building, for the development of a new methodological framework. The approach builds upon existing methods that have been widely applied to understand system mechanisms, but have never before been combined in order to enhance one another’s strengths and to counter weaknesses. Using this interdisciplinary methodological approach, we explore individual transport identities and innovation in transport choice and consider how these have been effected by COVID-19 disruptions in mobility behaviour. This will allow for a deeper understanding of travel behaviours that can be used to develop sustainable and equitable transport policies. The research also contributes to the development of interdisciplinary research practice as research techniques are combined, compared and contrasted.
