Education and Training Opportunities for Students

Educational Programs

Rather than maintaining our own list, we link here to very useful lists of education and training opportunities compiled by a number of our colleagues. 

Other useful information for students already in education or training programs include the following:

  • Teaching and Learning Materials:  A couple of years ago, we brok this out into a separate section, but forgetting that, I recently went looking for these materials here and didn't find them.  In case anyone else makes that mistake, click on this link and you will find a lot of useful materials--tutorials, Ken Cloke's full mediation training manual, the exercises Guy and I have developed for our various university courses and more.
  • Online Courses and Educational Materials
    Here we have two "self study" courses based on Beyond Intractability and CRInfo. We used to have funding that enabled us to actively teach these courses---having assignments and giving feedback. We no longer have funding to do this.  However, students should feel free to use these two courses for "self-study."  Instructors should also feel free to adopt some or all of these syllabi for their own use, (acknowledging BI as the source of the readings, of course), although we ask in exchange for  feedback of what you used, and how you "packaged it" within other teaching materials. We also ask that If students use BI as an alternative to a text book, we would appreciate your asking them to contribute a small fee to its maintenance — see the contribution page for guidelines
  • Working With Strong Emotions in the Classroom: A Guide for Teachers and Students
    Information and resources that teachers and students can use to prepare themselves for the highly-emotional exchanges — both expected and unexpected — that may occur in a classroom setting.
  • Group Projects: A Conflict Resolution Guide for Students
    Resources, helpful advice, and guidelines for successfully completing a group project, while constructively handling conflicts that may arise among the group members.
  • Multi-level Conflict Mapping Using PowerPoint, Prezi, and Websites
    Discussion of the advantages of graphical conflict maps, and an introduction to the Beyond Intractability / CRInfo library of such resources.
