Purpose. This article summarizes the nine contributions to the symposium on system dynamics. The goal of the symposium is to investigate how research in system dynamics is contributing to simulation-gaming, and how the more general field of simulation-gaming is influencing work in system dynamics. Summary of articles. We summarize the nine contributions. They include five articles on basic research in learning and teaching principles for system dynamics, three articles on interactive learning environments, and a final critical reflection article which summarizes the other eight and suggests future research needs. Conclusion. The main problem still to be addressed is improvement in and measurement of learning and performance.
