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
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 conference this week in Miami, and we’ve planned an advanced session for the next IACM conference.
You can read the first part of the two-part series here: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2409075 . The second piece should be coming out sometime over the next few weeks, and we’ll put it up as well. We look forward to feedback and ideas to feed into upcoming sessions and articles – don’t hold back!
