The faculty symposium focused on Systems Thinking and used the World Peace Game as an example of a complex systems that allows students to participated in working with and thinking through problems that are themselves systems.  The faculty viewed the film "World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements" and then developed ideas for courses they might develop with their colleagues that exposed their students to systems and systems thinking.  It was a marvelous work day with lots of good seeds planted for future development and thinking.
