Abstract

System Dynamics is a well formulated methodology for analyzing the components of a system including cause-effect relationships and their underlying mathematics and logic, time delays, and feedback loops. It began in the business and manufacturing world, but is now affecting education and many other disciplines. Having inspired by successful policy changes in lots of fields, the system dynamics researchers targeted to apply the system dynamics approach in the educational fields too.
