Core Competencies for Participatory Modeling

Participatory modeling (PM) is a craft that is often learned by training ‘on the job’, and mastered through years of experience. There is little explicit knowledge available on identifying and documenting the skills needed to perform PM. We are conducting this research project to identify the core competencies for participatory modeling. If you have been involved in a participatory modeling project in any capacity (i.e. modeler, project manager, facilitator, stakeholder,…etc.), then we would like to invite you to take part in the study by completing an online survey on identifying the core competencies for PM.
