New Audio & Video
Campus-adr.org now features
online media clips that can be useful as discussion or
tools. Enhancements in technology have allowed the Campus-adr
team to digitize older video and audio clips that were taped
years ago and were teetering close to "extinction."
We're pleased to be able to make these items available online
with the permission of the respective owners. The clips include
West Virginia University Teleconference Videos
in a 1989 teleconference sponsored by West Virginia University
and hosted by Howard Gadlin and Janet Rifkin, these short
simulations depict conflicts within the higher educational
context that might be appropriate for mediation. Examples
include: a Fraternity Conflict, a Roommate Conflict, a multiparty
Faculty/Student Conflict involving sexual harassment, and
a Residence Life conflict with potential racial overtones.
The clips are available online
for readers to view and discuss.
