Join us to discuss the pros and cons of facilitating mediations online, and learn some practical tips.
Our focus will be on synchronous, live video mediations. This workshop will cover:
• The ICODR (International Council for Online Dispute Resolution) Video Mediation Guidelines
• Psychological points: how to build rapport and trust online, disinhibition, how to reduce risk of participants walking out
• Practical points including preparing for internet failure, Zoom features useful for mediation : breakout rooms and security issues.
• My own experience is exclusively using Zoom for workplace mediations. I hope we will have a mix of experience of different types of mediation using different types of online platforms and can pool our knowledge and resources during this workshop.
• Small group discussions to share questions and good practice.
