Reel Life: Making and Using Films to Teach Negotiation
The Negotiation Pedagogy group at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School (NP@PON) invited CBI’s Hal Movius to present “Reel Life: Making and Using Films to Teach Negotiation” at a recent faculty dinner. This presentation focused on Hal's work in developing video simulations to help corporations train staff in negotiation techniques. His films have been very well-received and have provoked exciting conversations about negotiation instruction.
Hal explains, "Many training films are poorly made and therefore not credible or interesting to audiences. But well-made films that show people and problems that are realistic can provoke a deeper experience than just reading about a case or situation. They can show how things are unfolding, and choices that a person or group is making, in ways that are very rich."
