Simulation-based learning program designed to be used by professionals to practice and refine public outreach and community relations skills. This system was developed through a joint partnership between the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Institute for the Learning Sciences at Northwestern University, with support from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. The program consists of three simulated scenarios: 1. Evans Bay introduces the learner to a hazardous waste site clean-up where private and public sector needs collide. 2. Crystal Creek provides the opportunity to negotiate a charter between multiple stakeholder groups who have different interests in a western watershed. 3. Burnside places the learner in the role of coordinator/mediator in a politically charged scenario involving rising asthma rates in a big-city neighborhood

Case-based reasoning by Janet L Kolodner( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Case-based reasoning is one of the fastest growing areas in the field of knowledge-based systems and this book, authored by a leader in the field, is the first comprehensive text on the subject. Case-based reasoning systems are systems that store information about situations in their memory. As new problems arise, similar situations are searched out to help solve these problems. Problems are understood and inferences are made by finding the closest cases in memory, comparing and contrasting the problem with those cases, making inferences based on those comparisons, and asking questions when inferences can't be made
