Beyond the Courthouse:
Role-Play in Integrated ODR Environment with Webinar Debrief
Cyberweek 2016 - Beyond the Courthouse: Developing a Community of O... from Werner Institute on Vimeo.
You are invited to be among the first to experience the Beyond the Courthouse network, designed to bring people with disputes together with the professionals who can help them. Throughout Cyberweek 2016 participants will engage in an immersive role plays on the network, then join in a webinar debrief at the close of Cyberweek.
The BTC network is an integrated online dispute resolution environment: both a marketplace for ADR/ODR resources and professionals as well as a powerful, flexible and private ODR service-delivery platform featuring:
- Ask the Profesionals Q&A forum;
- Resource Area pages dedicated to specific subject matter areas;
- Private Meeting Rooms any member can create to work-out their disputes.
At the start of Cyberweek, all Cyberweek participants are invited to register on the BTC network. Over the course of Cyberweek participants will test his or her own ODR ideas by interacting with other participants (and fake members driven by moderators).
For the fully-immersive experience, you will want to request to be assigned to a role-play group. Classes, study groups and practice groups may prefer to coordinate among themselves to role-play their own scenario.
To begin, go to the Beyond the Courthouse network - beyondthecourthouse.net - and follow the Cyberweek 2016 instructions you find there.
After having spent Cyberweek interacting with others on the network, a webinar conversation would be centered on the participants' responses about what they've experienced in this specific context and from it what they have learned about ODR possibilities more generally. It would be a roundtable discussion generously-facilitated to encourage participation with a few elicitive, open-ended questions.
At the end of Cyberweek, join the webinar facilitated in a roundtable format by Jeff Aresty and Jeff Bean, host of the BTC network. We'll debrief what we experienced and learned.
Jeff Bean is a mediator, facilitator and lawyer in Seattle providing collaborative and agreement-oriented approaches to conflict and decision-making. He is past Chair of the Washington State Bar Association Alternative Dispute Resolution Section.
