What I liked about this course was that the readings were relevant and challenging, but not impossible to get through. The lecturer is knowledgeable, clear and easy to listen to. There was a good balance of video material, activities and reading materials. The assignments were quite well-balanced, in that you had to have done the reading to understand and complete the tasks successfully. Negatives are that the time indications given for the readings were often far too low - it often took me more than double the time indicated to read and annotate the texts - and the forum feels a little dead; messages about a broken link were not responded too, and there is no moderator interaction with student responses. It is important for students to feel like someone is aware there is a discussion going on, otherwise a course like this can feel a bit like a ghost town. Overall, I would recommend this course.

This is a great introductory course in conflict transformation. I gained practical knowledge that I could immediately put to use in my personal and professional relationships. Concepts are broken down making them digestible and easy to understand.

This is an interesting course that let's you think systematically about dimensions of a conflict and how to get something better out of it. It is not only about 'managing' a conflict, or 'resolving' a conflict - it is about transform to something better. This requires insight in conflict dynamics and underlying causes. There are some simple but useful tools to create insight or help change the way parties view a conflict. I like the broad application -- from bloody wars to small family irritations. The learning applies everywhere.

This course has been of great benefit to me, you visualize the concepts very well and it is well developed, it also makes you review and reflect on the conflicts you have had or have and when you analyze them you realize that you had not done anything to change them or transform them into something positive so that they are not harmful throughout your life. thanks to the whole team, it's been a big help.

This course gave me tools to deal with conflict in a way I never thought was possible. And not just dealing with the symptoms, but getting to the root of the conflict so we can deal with it so it does not keep reappearing again and again in different forms. The reading material was always relevant to the topic and the lectures were well presented.

Thank you, Dr. Ellen Ott Marshall and Chandler School of Theology at Emory University.

Great course, a lot of content and material. Students might have a great introduction to the conflict transformation studies. The professor was very clear and friendly and the exercises were pretty helpful. In future opportunities, I would suggest that more specialists could participate, so as the students could gain from different perspectives. But, all in all, the quality of the course was very high.

Thank you for the course offered. It helps me to understand in details what I used to take for granted on conflict resolution method. Now that there are structure ways of handling conflict, it gives me more confident in dealing with it when encountered.

May I know, if there is a certificate given? And do I need to buy it? How how much will it cost if any?

Thank you.

Warmest Regards

Very informative course about the opportunity to see conflict as a catalyst for change. It's a joy to listen to the teacher and the materials were intersting and adequate. One tip: when you want to read and study all the materials you need more time than what is indicated. A weekly load of two hours doesn't do justice to what you really need.

A very interesting and complete course about diverse thematics and perspectives of conflict, for me a lot of contents were new and wide my vision about the ways that I could have to improve my response to the conflicts in diverse scenarios. Congratulations to the teacher-instructor, she inspires confidence and reflects energy and happiness.

This course changed my way of thinking. It is challenging, well documented, very informative. Professor Ott Marshall is very skilled. She is one of the few professors I had the privilege to attend, that are able to communicate their passion and interest on a given subject. I enjoyed every minute and recommend this course to all.

I was looking for a course on turning upset ppl into happy ppl. This course analyses conflict from insider, by stender and mediator stand points. I like the part on what to say and what not to say when mediating a conflict.
