Affairs.com is offering a course on campus mediation
and conflict management programs as part of its
Spring 2002 online workshop series. The course will
look at ways to integrate mediation and conflict
management processes into the campus community.
Participants will learn about the range of conflict
resolution options for an academic environment,
as well as how to set up programs.
first weeks of the course will explore the nature
of conflict, alternative dispute resolution, mediation,
why mediation is a helpful tool in the academic
environment and design considerations for a campus
mediation/conflict management program.
second week will provide an in-depth view of integrating
mediation and conflict management services on campus.
the final week, participants synthesize the material
into an analysis of their own campus systems and
cultures, resulting in a preliminary conflict management
course runs March 18 to April 5, 2002 and costs
$180. The deadline for registration is March 12.
Participants can expect to spend five hours per
week on the course. This will include time to read
materials, complete online exercises and participate
in asynchronous online discussions. Tammy Lenski
is the course instructor.
