Negotiation and Conflict Resolution
Using a workplace and organisational perspective, this course analyses the nature of conflict and how it is “resolved” from a variety of theoretical and applied perspectives. Students will be able to describe and apply a range of conflict resolution methods including mediation, negotiation, and advocacy. The course is very practically oriented with a large workshop component interwoven with the lectures and audio-visual presentations. Students develop conflict resolution skills particularly through group-based formal negotiations within the general context of business organisations and the specific context of employment relations law and practice. Adopting a problem based learning approach, the course emphasises the importance of student“s communication skills as an essential attribute in effective conflict resolution.
Due to the nature of teaching methods, face-to-face class sizes are limited to a maximum of 30 students.
