The ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC) and The Canadian Collaborative for Engagement & Conflict Management (CECM) have once again united. We have updated and extended our popular, practically-focused program on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). This program was developed by Colm Brannigan and Marc Bhalla, who each have a Master of Laws in Dispute Resolution from Osgoode Hall Law School and focused their academic research on Online Dispute Resolution. Based on feedback from attendees of the initial practical 10-hour program, this new 20-hour comprehensive program delves deeper and includes a role play for experiential learning.
This in-depth, interactive program will highlight what is unique about addressing conflict online. In its practical focus, attendees will be walked through online mediation, arbitration processes and public justice system processes, from engagement to conflict closure. Unique challenges and opportunities will be discussed and creative ways to make use of various technologies to enhance the process demonstrated.
Whether this is your first foray into the world of ODR or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique 20-hour program. The program will be presented through 4 five-hour modules over the dates below.
