ABOUT THIS ITEM

This paper suggests that the possibility to experiment with relationships using system dynamics should lend the method easily to introducing practicum in the theory-based disciplines. This would however, require modifying teaching formats and creating new text materials and user-friendly computer programs suitable for use by students with little computer or mathematical expertise. A simulation laboratory consisting of a text and a user-friendly simulation program developed recently by the author on issues of economic development is presented as an example of material needed for integrating practicum with teaching.
