With Tatyana and Alex, two mediators from Ukraine who participate in our pilot project Virtual Mediation Lab, we will soon test a new setting for running our online mediation simulations via Skype.
As soon as we can find a third mediator with Skype in their country, the three of them will participate in a simulation in Ukranian – only their script and debrief session will be in English.
If our experiment in Ukraine works , it means that it could work in any other country – no matter what language the 3 mediators/participants speak.
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”.
