Multi-criteria decision support (MCDS) is a well-tested system that assists complex decision-making to be more effective and transparent. It is also a wonderful way to support basic mediation principles: separating positions from interests and science from policy, leveling and raising the education playing field, creating positive tension between old stories and shared new information, integrating with joint fact-finding, prioritizing research needs, and allowing people to test their values in complex scenarios. Web applications and design implications are also addressed. This fun course involves you in new techniques, provides a wonderful review of mediation basics, and stretches your mind as a designer and integrator.
- Expose participants to multi-criteria decision support and the elements it brings to collaborative design.
- Interactively think through some of the design possibilities for integrating MCDS with mediation principles.
- Close the gap between exposure and practice (participants either feel confident to do this themselves), know how to get there, or know how to find resources/teammates).
