Description
MODELING COLLECTIVE BEHAVIOR
Students will learn how to create dynamic models of health behavior in social context. We will study social ecological models of individual and collective action emphasizing the collective properties such as cooperation and policy resistance that often emerge. Students will learn how to: apply these models to plan and evaluate health interventions and policy; use systems thinking to model health problems; use simple software to create agent models; interpret results and describe public health implications.
