Systems Education (5)

These sections are on the several innovative educational projects of the Institute for Advanced Systems Studies (IAS) of California State Polytechnic University, and of ISISTEM (Institute for Systems-Integrated Sciences, Technology, Education, and Mathematics) that is just now forming as a cross-campus, cross-discipline, cross-college Institute that serves a growing Systems Faculty Fellowship across the 23 campuses of the CSUS (California State University System).

Subheadings are included on a Minor offered at CSPU, planned ISISTEM courses on Integrated Science, Comparative Systems Analysis (CSA), Systems Biology, Systems and Sustainability, Introduction of Systems Science for a M.S. in SE (Systems Engineering),  and others as on-line, distanced learning courses for students across California taught by interdisciplinary teams of distributed professors.

The original I.A.S. was awarded two grants by the National Science Foundation to create a curriculum for covering all of the science G.E. requirements in one integrated course. Please go to YouTube at this URL for an introduction to that curriculum design.

Here is the YouTube link for an approximately 16 min video…..

In 1992, 1993, and 2002 we published three short articles that gave overviews of the I.S.G.E. Curriculum and its forerunner in the eighties, an Integrated curriculum on Environmental Education. Here are those articles.

Selection and Sequencing of Systems Concepts for Systems Education: Case Studies in Integrated Science & Environmental Sciences (1993a, Troncale)

Systems Science Concepts as Unifying Teaching Themes: Integrative Science General Education (1992a, Troncale)
