Group Project Module Description
There are five major groups of concepts involved when learning about Complex Adaptive System:
Group 1: Complexity and Resilience
Group 2: Interactions, hierarchies, scale and emergence
Group 3: Non-linearity, uncertainty, thresholds, and regime shifts
Group 4: Redundancy, response diversity, and networks
Group 5: Panarchy, adaptive management, and novel ecosystems
The main goal of this module is for groups of students to select one of the five group concepts that is of most interest to them. Each group of students will read the scientific literature as well as share professional thoughts on their concept. Students will practice teamwork, presentation skills, and project management skills.
The first task of this module is to find students with similar interests and choose one of the group concepts. Videos available online can be a good source to getting started.
