Systems Thinking & Change Division

Welcome to the Division of Systems Thinking and Change!

We are a group of people who want to shape change in diverse organizational environments by thinking through the process together. We collaborate on practical applications, theories, quality research, and data driven systems thinking models that create and inform new avenues of impact and inquiry through its applications in emerging fields and technologies.

STC has several initiatives in which you may choose to become involved. These initiatives include: planning and delivering webinars, organizing and implementing professional development, conferring division-sponsored awards, increasing STC's social presence, collaborating across AECT divisions, submitting and reviewing AECT convention proposals, and learning and exchaging in the Division's book club!

You can read more about our Division in this Orientation Capsule. You will find links to our first and our current bylaws there.
