IMT 586: Information Dynamics at the University of Washington
If you are not a UW graduate student, but you are an interested professional who lives within commuting distance of UW, consider signing up, too. For any of you, studying system dynamics (okay, it's offered in the Information School, so we call it Information Dynamics) offers a great opportunity to learn a new way to make sense of the challenges we face and to find and test solutions.
Last year, all of the students brought their laptops to class. That let us create and explore computer models and simulations in class, which seemed to make for faster, more solid, and much more interesting learning. I hope to do even more of that this year. If you sign up and can bring your laptop, great. If you can't because you have a desktop machine, that's okay. We'll be fine as long as at least half the class brings laptops.
I look forward to seeing many of you in January! Please ask if you have questions.
