The workshop is for researchers who want a broader and deeper understanding of complexity and system thinking, and will provide an introduction to appropriate conceptual models and research methods for research and evaluation within complex systems. A certificate of participation (6 h) will be provided , that might qualify into a PhD - or "førstelektor"-programme.
The workshop will include:
In order to try out system mapping we will use the software Kumu that works entirely within your web browser. Thus, you do not have to install anything — just register for a 14 d free account (make sure it is valid on the 27. February).
