Virtual Mediation Lab, a project sponsored by ACR Hawaii, helps mediators practice and improve their skills by participating with other mediators in online mediation simulations of commercial, family, and workplace cases.
How is this lab being used? Mediators around the world are looking for places to practice their skills, while not always being able to get the face to face practice they would like.
Why is the lab being used?
Who is using the lab?
Participants from around the world are using the lab to hone their skills before stepping into the mediation room. These might be seasoned lawyers, retired judges, or participants in an online Basic Mediation Training
In order to make simulations as instructive as possible, they are followed by a 30/60-min debriefing session to reflect on what happened during the 1-hour mediation session – what worked well or not-so-well, and why.
