Im Rahmen der von swissuniversities geförderten hochschultypenübergreifenden Doktorats-Kooperation bieten wir massgeschneiderte Fortbildungen für Doktoranden/innen und Doktoratsinteressierte an.

Workshop Group Model Building

Tuesday, 15th October 2024

9.00 to 17.00
(12.15 to 13.15 Lunch break)

Hochschulcampus Toni-Areal, Pfingstweidstrasse 96, Zürich, Room no. 6.B21 (group works will take place in Room 6.B21 and 6.D21)

Prof. Klaske N. Veth PhD, Professor Leadership & Sustainable Employment
Mareikje Pfenning, MSc, a researcher and PhD student from the Hanze University of Applied Science Groningen

Target Group
PhD students of the ZHAW doctoral co-operation and research employees of our School of Applied Psychology 

The costs are largely financed by swissuniversities funds for the promotion of the cooperation project in the field of doctoral training. The course is free of charge for participants.

GMB Group Model Building is a facilitated approach of System Dynamics (e.g., Sterman, 2000), helping participants to share their insights and beliefs (‘mental models’), to exchange their information about a complex problem, and to combine and visualise these different viewpoints in a model, what we call a Causal Loop Diagram (Rouwette et al., 2016; Vennix, 1996). A model is based on feedback loops, visualising the interactions between system factors and processes in a model (2018; Lansu et al., 2019). GMB as a data collection method does not only support by visualising a real-world problem from multiple viewpoints, it can also enhance or change our current knowledge and understanding of a problem (Király & Miskolczi, 2019), offering the opportunity to create awareness among relevant stakeholders. Do you want to learn more about the method and experience this approach by yourself, join us at this workshop day.
