As more and more teachers in the area of negotiation and dispute resolution consider taking their courses (or, parts of them) online, I’ve received many queries of the “How do you get started?” variety. And, I’m not the only one fielding these questions. I'd like to share a resource, addressing these questions.
Together with co –presenters and –authors Jennifer Parlamis (University of San Francisco), Roy Lewicki (Ohio State University) and Lorianne Mitchell (East Tennessee State University), I offered a couple of workshops on the topic at last year’s International Association of Conflict Management’s (IACM) conference. Afterwards, we were asked to write up a two-part article-series for IACM’s newsletter, SIGNAL, introducing the topic to a wider audience – and saw a large audience at a follow up symposium on the topic at IACM’s conference this summer in Leiden.
I’m sure this area will be seeing rapid development in the near future - I attended a session related to this topic at the ABA’s Dispute Resolution Section’s last conference in Miami, and hope to participate in one at the next ABA conference in Seattle.
You can read the first part of the two-part series here: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2409075 . The second piece has recently come out in IACM’s SIGNAL journal, and I’ve uploaded it here: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2491455
We look forward to feedback and ideas to feed into upcoming sessions and articles – don’t hold back!
