“Complexity, climate change, and TerreWEB: putting our passion into action”

 Thursday, January 23rd

 2:00pm – 3:30pm

 Room: MCML 154

Although geared towards TerreWEB scholars, everyone is welcome!

This seminar will be led by Suzanne, Michelle and Preston, where as a group we will discuss our mutual passions and goals for TerreWEB, and how we could use our understanding of complex adaptive systems to reach our goals.  This includes your own goals for your individual research projects.  We will discuss the following three topics:
1)     What are Our mutual passions and goals for TerreWEB and those for our own individual TerreWEB research projects?
2)     What are complex adaptive systems (CAS) and how do they work?
3)     Why and how can our TerreWEB goals be reached through a CAS approach?
We would like to publish an e-paper with TerreWEB students this year documenting how and why we have adopted a CAS approach to TerreWEB.
 In preparation for this seminar, we would like you to consider the following questions:
(1)    What makes your study interesting and exciting?
(2)    Is it easy to understand and explain, or is it complicated?  Or complex?
(3)    Do the research concerns/questions change with time? Then is it a complex adaptive system?
(4)    How do you see TerreWEB fitting into your career goals? Can you structure your communication component to enhance your future job skills?
