Agreement to Learn

What is the Mi Agreement to Learn?

Role plays can be intimidating at first unless the right environment is created. The Mi Agreement to Learn has been created to make sure that students know what to expect when they come to a role play.

We encourage open feedback and discussion following role plays. The feedback is detailed and constructive. This can be challenging for learners however the benefits in applied learning support the process.

The Mi Agreement to Learn is an agreement between students and Mediation Institute that outlines expectations in regards to some of the areas of learning where the potential for misunderstandings to occur. This particularly relates to issues around group feedback, role play behaviour and client confidentiality during supervision.

Mi Agreement to Learn

Mi Agreement to Learn

The learner and Mediation Institute staff agree:
1. To work together with an intention to learn and facilitate learning with a willingness to actively listen, to ask questions to confirm understanding and to communicate openly.
2. Learners and staff have the right to be treated with respect during this process.

Roleplays

3. It is understood that Roleplays both online and face to face are designed to give the student mediator the opportunity to practice the mediation process in a safe environment and in
good faith from all participants.
4. It is expected that those playing the “client” character in a role provide the mediator with sufficient conflict for the Mediator to work with and considering the mediators experience. Do not get carried away or become stubbornly entrenched in your position.
5. Learners are required to observe at least one mediation role play prior to participation as a Mediator or Client.
6. When participating in role plays you will be expected to be respectful towards other learners and trainers and conduct yourself accordingly.
7. Disrespectful language towards mentors or outrageous behaviour is not acceptable.
8. The trainer or coach may elect to pause or stop the mediation at their discretion.
9. Feedback is done in a group to maximise learning for the mediator and parties. A learner may request the trainer or coach provide a private feedback session.

Feedback

10. Learning new skills requires practice and feedback on your performance. Self-reflection and self-awareness is supported by encouraging learners to evaluate your own performance in role plays.
11. You will be given constructive feedback following role plays and other assessment. This may include live feedback during your mediation role plays and may be in the presence of other staff, learners or
observers.
12. Learning is more effective if most feedback is focused on reinforcing what is done well and corrections are given in terms of what to do differently and how to make that change. Feedback is intended to
support, encourage and develop skills and understanding.

Privacy

13. Mediation Institute embraces a shared learning approach and learners will participate in discussions, collaborations, role plays and other activities where contact information such as email addresses and
phone numbers may be shared between learners to facilitate communication . Any learner with privacy concerns is responsible for contacting Mediation Institute to discuss their concerns about the sharing
of your contact information.
14. Mediation Institute may take video recordings or photographs of learning activities. These media files may be used in a variety of ways such as learning resources or for marketing purposes. They may be
stored on websites open to public viewing such as Facebook, Vimeo and You Tube. Any learner with privacy concerns is responsible for contacting Mediation Institute to discuss their concerns about sharing of their images or voice recordings.

Mi Supervision

15. Participating in Group Supervision sessions may be part of your course curriculum. Learners are encouraged to maximise their engagement and various times and dates are made available.
16. Mi Supervision is modelled on positive supervision principles and supervision should be an enjoyable and constructive experience. Any disagreements between supervision group member’s beliefs, values, opinions or any other matter should be discussed in a respectful and thoughtful manner with respect for diversity and the value of difference.
17. Personal attacks, insults, aggressive language or other behaviour that is intended to intimidate or impose upon other people is completely unacceptable.
18. The confidentiality of client information must be protected during work placement. Client names should not be used during supervision and descriptions of their circumstances kept sufficiently vague or modified
to avoid their identity being apparent.

Workshops

19. Participation in workshops is an important part of the some of our course. You are expected to participate in workshops. If you are unable to attend a workshop you must apply for an exemption.
20. Learners are fully responsible for any costs associated with traveling to or attending workshops associated with their course.

Role Play Scheduler

Update on change to the role play scheduler for all current students.

What’s changed

We have closed the Role Plays Course and Eventbrite events which used to be used to coordinate role plays and are now using a google spreadsheet that all students can access from whatever course you are in within the LMS.

How do I get to the spreadsheet?

MenuTo access the Role Play Scheduler just go to your course www.mi.instructure.com 

No matter where you are in the course you can see a dark blue menu on the left of your screen.

Click on the Links Icon.

A Links Help Menu will pop out. It has a number of links that will take you to where you need to go.

  • Role Play Scheduler – Links to the Role Play Scheduler (I know, amazing!)
  • Videos- Role Play Recordings and Webinars – Links to Recorded Videos from Mediation Institute faculty and students
  • Mi Students and Graduates Linked In – Links to the “Mediation Institute Students and Graduates” Linked In Group.  If you haven’t already please follow the link to join this closed group for our students and graduates.
  • Mi Mediation Facebook Page – Links to the Mi Facebook Page. We often share interesting content so if you use Facebook follow the page.
  • Mi Website Student Area – where posts for students are collated.
  • The rest of the links are more to do with the learning management system interface so may not be of interest.

 

What do I do when I get there?

Contact Information

1st thing check your contact information. Is it showing the correct information.

We have taken the step of providing phone and email contact information as with the phasing out of the Role Play Course students in different courses can no longer email directly from the course.

If the page didn’t default to Contact Information you can find it by looking for the tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

Book in for role plays

The spreadsheet is set up so that the days of the week go across the page and the weeks go down the page.

We are using colour coding to see at a glance if everything is in place for the role play to proceed or if a role is vacant

The two role plays on the evening of the 25th October below proceeded (they are in green) The column headings are on the spreadsheet but reading left to right is

  1. the date,
  2. Time (The first is Melbourne time, the second Brisbane) but we have standardised so that all future role plays should show EST (Brisbane Time)
  3. Name of the mentor
  4. Mentors zoom number
  5. Type of role play (determined by the person who is the mediator)
  6. The mediator
  7. Role Player 1
  8. Role Player 2

Role plays

 

If the row you are looking at is in orange it means that we still need role players, if it is in red it means the role play didn’t proceed.

 

Course Structures

Course Structure information for current students.

 NMAS Mediator Accreditation Course Only

The course on your course dashboard should be NMAS Accreditation Course

Online role plays are scheduled via the Role Play Scheduler. You can assess a link to the Role Play Scheduler from the Links Icon which is on the bottom left of your screen from anywhere within the course.

CHC80308 – Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution

Your course is delivered as a single course with all ten units integrated into a streamlined delivery model.

The course is called CHC80308 Grad Dip FDR on its label in the Dashboard.

CHC81115 – Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution

Due to constraints imposed by VET FEE-HELP this course is delivered over four courses in the Learning Management System (Canvas)

Student Update – 29.6.16

Update on role plays that are on in the next month. We are still looking for role players for some and graduates and other qualified FDR Practitioners and/or professional mediators are welcomed to come along to refresh, earn free CPD points and share the fun.

Those interested in training with Mediation Institute are also welcome to register as observers.

Congratulations

We’ve had a few students who have completed their studies recently.

– Mary Davenport has completed her Certificate IV and NMAS accreditation and is continuing on the pathway to the Graduate Diploma.

Ursula Najar has finished her Cert IV and has decided to continue her studies and enrol in the Graduate Diploma so we’ll all get to enjoy more of her mediations

Hara Synos has finished her Graduate Diploma and will be adding FDR to her psychology practice and is also going to be completing the Jenifer McIntosh Child Consultant course to upskill to be available to work with other FDR Practitioners in a child inclusive model. http://childrenbeyonddispute.com/child-inclusive-mediation/about-the-course/ We’ll keep you updated on Hara’s progress and if you’re working in the Melbourne region may be able to bring Hara in when bringing the child’s voice into the mediation would be beneficial.

Lisa Walker also completed her last FDR role play last night and we’ve requested her qualification. We hope that Lisa will find the time to continue to come along to role plays sometimes and she’s likely to be doing some interning with Interact Support www.interact.support

Anthea Shaw also completed her requirements today. As you may know Anthea is currently working with the Family Relationships Centre in Geraldton in WA. She’s been a real pleasure to work with as she brought we wealth of experience that really showed in how well she managed the challenges of the role plays she completed. I think the people of Geraldton are well and truely in good hands.  You can watch her Property mediation on Vimeo While you’re there remember to make an account and follow Mediation Institute so you get a notice about the videos we upload.

George Stack has also finalised his course and will be joining the team at LECNA Community Mediation Service that Ken and other graduates have established in Brisbane as a FDR Practitioner shortly as well as adding FDR to his counseling practice. Those who have been on the course for a while have probably met George and will wish him well.

I’m sure you’ll all join those of us at Mediation Institute in congratulating these recent graduates.

Please put your name down in the HIGHEST role you are ready to perform e.g if you are ready to mediate put yourself down as mediator or standby mediator. (you don’t have to bother registering as role player or observer as we’ll adjust your role if necessary) 

Finally remember that we can schedule additional role plays at times that work for you. WA people especially we know that the times are a bit hard for you so can accommodate your needs if you can’t schedule the 9.30 am or 5 pm starts.
