Jay Forrester Seminar Series
Mini-Courses to Develop System Dynamics Skills

The Jay Forrester Seminar Series consists of lectures and discussions conducted by the founder of the field with his Ph.D. students in the fall of 1999 at the MIT Sloan School of Management. The series was recorded by Susan Forrester and the Society used to handle this resource in a DVD. 

For the past year, a group of volunteers has been working on this valuable material. They completely revamped the series into a more accessible, on-demand, online course. 

A total of 11 courses will be available throughout the next months. Three of them have been released already!  Select from rich and engaging mini-courses with discussion questions to interact with other students, quizzes to test your knowledge, and readings to dive deeper. The first mini-course is free for everyone!

Mini-Courses are FREE for Society members | $25 for non-members.
