Blended and online learning opportunities

Special additional offer to attend this specialization course online or via distant learning.


Based on interest and requests received we will add some exiting new features to the curriculum.

  • We received several requests to add employment cases and dealing with group conflict within companies. So, we will add the possibility to choose to work on an employment case as a mediator for the practice part and add a lecture with practice on effectively dealing with inner company group conflict to the curriculum.
  • There are participants who indicated they would like to join online. So, we are offering a blended learning in a side-by-side manner. *


Blended learning:

The general format of this specialization course is that we will deal with theory, lectures, interactive discussions, and debriefing on homework assignments etc. in the morning. The practice, role-plays / small group work / exercises in the afternoon. The exception to this is day 3 (Saturday July 11) which will be a full practice day.

We intend to videotape all morning sessions lectured life in class in Geneva and upload this on our digital learning platform. Also ‘life online attendance through zoom’ is possible for the online attendees. All participants (online and offline) will be given access to our digital learning platform with several literature, publications, checklists, background information, as well as videos of classes and where applicable of practice performance sessions. This will be made available for at least one year after following the course so you can revisit any lectures and material at your own leisure in the future
