In this webinar, we will:
- Review what positive and negative feedback loops are, and why they are important to teach and learn about
- Encourage the teaching of feedback loops as a generalizable habit of mind, applicable across many domains of personal and professional life, rather than as an explanation for one specific Earth phenomenon
- Share two teaching strategies, along with their cognitive underpinnings, that can be used stand-alone or adapted to augment your current feedback loop teaching: (1) Extract the schema, and (2) causal loop diagrams.
