The state-of-the-art in our thinking sometimes shows up in presentations, for invited audiences or for graduate school courses.

In winter 2020, a series for four lectures were prepared for the Master's program in Strategic Foresight & Innovation at OCADU. These are available as a series of blog posts, and as a playlist on Youtube.

On January 17, 2020, the lecture focused on the shift towards systems changes, from system + change as independent parts.

On January 31, 2020, the lecture surfaced errors, attention and traps (from an ecological understanding).

On February 7, 2020, the lecture reframed episteme, techne and phronesis, diving into appreciative systems, services systems, and the socio-technical systems perspective).

On February 6, 2020, the lecture presented an alternative to the espoused unfreeze-change-refreeze steps (attributed wrongly to Kurt Lewin), directing attention towards more recent advances in situated learning + history-making, and commitment and language-action perspective).

The activities on Systems Changes have largely emerged from participation amongst the collaborators. This began in A Call for Participation, that was presented at Systems Thinking Ontario, January 14, 2019.
