Air Gondwana and the Teaching of Negotiation Skills: Imagination in Design and Imagination in Learning

Butler, Desmond A. (2008) Air Gondwana and the Teaching of Negotiation Skills: Imagination in Design and Imagination in Learning. In Sixth International Conference on Imagination and Education: Imaginative Practice, Imaginative Inquiry, 29–31 January 2008, Rydges Lakeside, Canberra, Australia.

Abstract

The skill of negotiation is a skill that is crucial for lawyers to master. It is a skill which is now taught explicitly alongside the substantive law and a number of Australian law schools including that at the Queensland University of Technology. Methods of teaching the skill may vary but a traditional approach involves some form of instruction followed by a role play. This paper examines the author’s imaginative use of technology to create an engaging and challenging learning environment in which students will themselves be required to exercise and imagination in development of their skills.
