Mr. Peter Tuddenham is a co-founder of the College of Exploration, which over the past 20 years has engaged over 15,000 learners worldwide in online collaborative learning environments. Participants from a wide variety of disciplines and countries meet online to explore, learn and create with each other on a variety of ecosystem topics especially ocean, earth and climate systems.  He is a Co-Principal Investigator on a number of National Science Foundation and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grants researching and educating the topics of literacy, change and learning in complex national systems.  Mr. Tuddenham served for three years as guest faculty in Executive Development at the US Army War College studying personal transformation for mid-career officers. This action research was part of a 5 year research project on the selection and development of 3 and 4 star generals in the US Army. He has studied Systems Design at Saybrook University in San Francisco and the Open University in England. He has a BS in Business from Regis University in Denver Colorado. Before moving to the USA he was commissioned as an officer in the British Army Corps of Royal Engineers from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. 


Interests: large system management and change serving in roles of strategy development, communications and human resources for three Fortune 500 organizations in the consumer goods, telecommunications and Nuclear power industries.

Interest in complexity emerged from his early work studying systems theories and practices and now involves studying the contributions of cybernetics, reflexivity and quantum science and thought to the language of complexity and complex systems.

More Q & A with Peter Tuddenham

What questions are you most excited about exploring these days?

Peter:  Questions of personal development, knowing and acting as a result of studies in quantum energy research as it relates to "the power of human intention to robustly influence human reality” ( to quote William Tiller). This is especially interesting and relevant to me in our work on creating collaborative learning environments and experiences on topics related to the ocean, earth systems and climate change.

What other research/researchers are you tracking?

Peter: I am tracking work in human biofield knowing and development as it related to human health and relationships and how that relates to resonances of people, places, things and events. In particular I am interested in the work of William Tiller in human energy systems. I am also interested in the contributions of cybernetics ideas, especially work of Stuart Umpleby in the philosophy and practice of science and reflexivity, and the work of Eric Jantsch, CS Holling and others as it relates to the environment.

What do you think is the most promising idea/theory emerging from complexity science for making a difference in fulfilling Plexus' mission?
Peter:  I think I can better answer that after spending more time with colleagues in Plexus.
