Universality and spontaneity of these emotional expressions are what make facial expressions so uniquely insightful and reliable vehicles to people reading.The interactive webinar will present the science and background behind the universal expressions and provide insight into the different types of expressions including those that are attempts to conceal ones true emotions.
May- Making The 'Green In The Machine' Work For You
With Noam Ebner, Colleen Getz, Susanna Jani [more here]
Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) is becoming widely accepted, with its proponents pointing out the advantages that harnessing the power of the Internet offers to dispute resolution. These benefits include enhanced flexibility, expertise, and accessibility, as well as reduced costs, time-investment and travel. One clear benefit of ODR which has not been spotlighted, however, is the environmental advantage which ODR enjoys over any other form of dispute resolution.
In this webinar, we will explore the nature and value of this advantage, presenting case studies which illustrate how significant this advantage is. We will also address the fundamental question of ‘What’s in it for us?’. Benefit to the planet aside – what do ODR practitioners, and the ODR field, stand to gain from spotlighting ODR’s environmental aspects? And – what might we do in order to achieve these gains?
