SLE ONLINE TRAINING Conflict Management and Conflict Transformation
Conflict management and conflict transformation are core issues of development work. Development projects are not only affected by conflict, but also run the risk of aggravating existing conflicts in a particular region or even triggering new conflicts.
This training course gives a sound understanding of the phenomenon of conflict, which we will explore on the personal and interpersonal level, as well as on the level of large groups and societies.
Course Objectives: By the end of the course participants will be familiar with the principles of conflict management and conflict transformation. They will have substantially broadened their horizon on the issue of conflict and applied tools to understand its mechanisms and work with it in a non-violent way. Course Objectives

What does live online training mean? Our online trainings are not pre-recorded training videos, webinars for large audiences or self-paced e-learning courses. They are virtual live trainings delivered by our trainers in real-time, focusing on the interaction of a small group of remote participants. Just like our face-to-face trainings, these virtual classrooms aim at tailoring the discussions and learning experiences to the training needs of the participants.
Requirements: to attend our live online trainings, a reliable high-speed internet connection and a computer or laptop running Windows or iOS are required (including audio and video). The Humboldt-Universität of Berlin uses the videoconferencing platform Zoom (subject to change) for virtual classrooms as well as other digital tools. We strongly recommend an external headset for better sound quality
Our short intensive courses promote learning through experience: 'Learning by doing for impact' is the most important aspect of the SLE's training philosophy. Our participants come from all around the globe: They include staff from development agencies, national and international NGOs, public institutions, university students and researchers, as well as professionals from the private sector. These different cultural backgrounds and professions add to an intercultural and transdisciplinary exchange of experiences within an enabling learning environment.
While there is no application deadline, there is only a limited number of places available in each course and they fill up quickly. We are looking forward to receiving your application!
