leveraging network partners toward the accomplishment of a common goal. Building on the Systems Thinking and Adaptive Leadership course of the first semester, students will gain fluency in the practice of systems mapping grounded by field experience with NOLS on an Alaska Backpacking Expedition. They will explore, both experientially and conceptually, the domains of systems theory and its opportunities, challenges, and rewards. They will also examine leadership qualities and attributes that Systemic Facilitators require, as well as those of Sustainability Change Agents. Collaborative problem solving will be an integral component of this course, and will be demonstrated on expedition, the cohort and online learning community, and in personal and professional domains. 2 credit(s)
