New on-line taster course on systems thinking

Colleagues at the Institute for Sustainable Futures (university of Technology, Sydney) have advised:
"that the first module of the systems thinking course I mentioned we were developing is now available online at UTS OPEN. It’s  ISF’s first ever online course and is one of the first four UTS courses available to the general public free of charge. We’ve tried not to replicate all the good work that’s already out there including the OU’s course and are hoping to offer some different angles on systems thinking. Let us know what you think if you get a chance to have a look at it. The course is an introduction or taster course' on systems thinking and you can find it here at this link .  We will hopefully be developing another 4 modules to complete this course (dependent on further funding).
Please feel free to share the link with anyone who might be interested. This is still a ‘soft launch’ phase and we can still make improvements to the course and would really appreciate any honest and constructive feedback on how we can further improve it. As this is only a ‘taster’ module it is meant to get people interested in systems thinking and wanting more. "
