IMPORTANT Announcement About Our LinkedIn Group

The range of mediation and ODR-related topics that we have discussed during the last few months through our LinkedIn group has become broader. At the same time, the number of new projects — e.g. online mediation simulations in different languages, mobile mediation, online mediation of International parental child abduction cases -launched in our Virtual Mediation Lab has increased considerably.

For those two reasons, we have come to the conclusion that the current name of our group “Mediation Skills Development Around the World with Skype” is no longer adequate. Just to give you an example, the way that name describes what we are doing in our virtual lab is now:

  • Partial – Mediation skills development is just one of our current 3 goals
  • And inaccurate – Instead of Skype, we are now using a different video conferencing software – Zoom (Pro version)

As a result, we have decided to change the name of our LinkedIn group to “Virtual Mediation Lab”. Regrettably, for some technical reasons, LinkedIn wouldn’t let us simply replace the old name with the new one. And therefore,

  • We have created a new LinkedIn Group, called “Virtual Mediation Lab”. From now on, all our new discussions will be posted there, including the announcement of a new and exciting online mediation project, which we expect to launch in the next few weeks
