CR Competencies, Learning Assessment, & Pedagogy Cites

From Dr. John Windmueller’s blog.

At a recent symposium I presented on the topic of defining, teaching, and assessing conflict resolution competencies. The symposium’s organizers videotaped the panel, and I’ll post the footage when it becomes available, but in the meantime, here’s the bibliography handout I compiled for the talk:
