One thought on “Mediation@MIT Offering Course in June: Applications due May 30

  1. I want to take an “executive course” on mediation.
    A number of years ago I took Harvard Law’s “Negotiation” 2 week executive course.
    I am trained as a mediator in Canada ( Ontario). However, the Bar of Ontario and the justices took a different approach to mediation than, as I understand, Harvard and MIT view the field.
    From the website I cannot pin down if there is a course at MIT available to me, which rather “parallels” the 2 week executive course which I took at Harvard.
    I also took the training for “Partnering” given by the American Arbitration Assoc. I used that in conjunction with DDC ( Defence Construction Canada) and was good at it. However, in Canada it seems to have “gone out of fashion”, OR is being done “in-house. There was room for change in the form and my collegue and I offered subtle /yet relevant changes. (I think the field people appreciated our awareness, but not the federal civil service.)
    If a longer course is not available, would I be entitled to take the course sited above– June 18,19,20 and again 25 and 26th?
    Actually I assume that these dates may apply to 2016. Yet, I assume that this is an annual course and while the dates will vary, it will be little.
