To study question of can't we all just get along, students play games of cooperation, coordination, collaboration, and competition and examine whether and how diversity, disagreement, and democracy influence game play, to understand under what conditions diversity feeds productively or counterproductively into group effort. Development of self- and other-awareness of emergent properties of disagreement to appreciate how different kinds of social organization promote or undercut social cognition and collective action. Such understanding needs to develop bottom-up through experiential and interactive learning, active and analytical learning, systems thinking, and real-world application.
