Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s System Dynamics Club hosts weekly Collective Learning Meetings (CLM). These are meetings for students to obtain peer feedback on unfinished or exploratory work. We occasionally host presentations from experts on various topics. We welcome all learners from any institution to participate and present.
We co-host meetings with the System Dynamics Society’s Economics special interest group (SIG), Water SIG and the Transboundary Groundwater Resiliency Research (TGRR) network.
In addition to providing a platform for peer feedback, we also host Peer Tutoring Sessions which also serve as networking sessions where participants share resources and tips. If you are new to SD, please join us. We can help you navigate your SD journey and connect you to those in your application area.
WPI CLMs are a student-run event. In 2013, when Saeed Langarudi and Raafat Zaini were PhD students, they started hosting CLMs to have a regular meeting to share and learn from each other. In 2014, after reviving the WPI SD Club, they invited students and faculty from different departments at WPI. Since 2014, SD Club has hosted these meetings for anyone to attend. We went hybrid in 2015 and are currently fully online.
