Agenda for the October 18, 2012 Webinar “Enhancing Mediation Skills Through Online Simulations”

Here is the Agenda for the October 18, 2012 National Association for Community Mediation webinar “Enhancing Skills Trough Online Simulations”, to present and discuss the results of Virtual Mediation Lab, an online mediation project sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution – Hawaii Chapter.

Launched in November 2011, the goal of VML was to show how mediators around the world can practice and improve their mediation skills by participating – with other mediators – in online mediation simulations with Skype. The pilot phase of VML ended successfully on June 2, 2012, after 50 simulations run with 62 mediators from 22 countries.

  • Why Skype
  • Format of VML Simulations
  • Hardware, Software and Cost To Run and Participate in VML Simulations
  • 6 Benefits for Mediators
  • 5-min Video Based on Actual Simulation
  • Lessons Learned Mediating with Skype
  • What’s Next

Date and Time: October 18, 2012; 3:30 – 4:15 pm EST

Registration is FREE for current NAFCM members and $25 for non-members.

PLEASE NOTE – We no longer use Skype for our Virtual Mediation Lab online mediation simulations. To learn why, sign up for our 1-hour Introduction to Online Mediation with PC Mac and Mobile Devices. One of the topics we cover during that training is “How to Choose a Video Conferencing Software for Online Mediation”.
