After a brief introduction to the concept, participants will spend most of the session in a collaborative modeling exercise. All attendees will participate as members of different stakeholder groups. Through the exercise, presenters will demonstrate how the computer model makes mental models explicit and provides a common language for communicating among the whole group. This session will conclude with a debriefing on the experience, with emphasis on identifying what features of the process and of the model are required for incorporating collaborative modeling into a project.
