Workshop Description

This is a presentation and discussion on a new systemic design book, Design Journeys through Complex Systems. Jones and Van Ael discuss the core ideas in the book, the unique methodology, the progression of collaborative learning using the tools, and the style of convening workshops with mixed methods.

This active and interactive session focuses on the methodology and its scientific support – i.e., stakeholder model, sensemaking methods, tool selection, and co-creation contexts. Graduate-level use cases demonstrate how learning systems methods in codesign contexts might be accelerated through Design Journeys and the Systemic Design Toolkit.


  • Learn the extended methodology and tools in the evolved Systemic Design Toolkit in a new book based on seven years of research and development of systems thinking tools in design.
  • Learn about selected methods, theories, and practices as advocated for systems change (social transformation) applications.
  • Learn how systemic design methodology applies across the stages of a comprehensive design project
