Syllabus

Getting Started
Get started with the course! Begin by reading the Course Overview and completing the Pre-Course Survey.

Active Listening Skills
In this module we will begin by examining active listening skills as a means of reaching a resolution. We will then shift our attention to recognizing conflict and knowing when to intervene. Lastly, we will discuss the five approaches to conflict.

Communication Problems and Skills
In this module we will discuss one of the approaches to conflict discussed in the previous module, the Collaborative Solution. Specifically, we will focus on how to get to the facts and how to set the collaborative stage.

Usable Plan
In this module we will define "position" and "interest," as they pertain to conflict resolution. In doing so we will underscore the importance of moving from position to interest. Furthermore, we will examine how to create an action plan with the end goal of producing an agreed upon solution.

Course Wrap-up
Congratulations! You've made it to the end of the course. Please watch the end of course video, read the message from UCI Extension, and complete the post-course survey.
