Technology & The Ethics of Mediation
When technology and mediation are mentioned in the same breath it is common for practitioners to think of online platforms like Modria.com, where mediation is done largely online using specialized software. But most of us use some kind of technology in our practices – telephones, mobile and smart phones, e-mail, cloud storage and file sharing, and social media, to name only a few. Our use of information and communication technology (ICT), from lowly e-mail to “full service” platforms like Modria, directly affects how we manage the ethical demands associated with the practice of mediation. This webinar will address a broad array of ethical issues associated with mediation and technology, and will suggest ways that practitioners can maintain an ethical practice while using all of the ICT tools available.
