You are cordially invited to attend the next 

Pedagogy @ PON Faculty Dinner Seminar  

featuring a discussion on:  


“Joint Training in Negotiation: How Does It Work?”  


Thursday, December 5, 2013 

6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

at the 

Harvard Faculty Club


. Organized by Pedagogy @ PON directors Larry Susskind (MIT) and Michael Wheeler (HBS), this seminar will bring PON-affiliated faculty together to explore what happens when the parties in a dispute engage in joint training aimed at helping them to shift from a win-lose to a mutual gains approach to negotiation.

The Dinner Seminar will have three speakers. The first is Frans Evers from the Netherlands, a very experienced public dispute mediator and negotiation trainer who has served at the Ministerial level in the Netherlands, headed the largest nature organization in his country, and successfully mediated a number of high profile infrastructure development projects. He has pioneered the use of joint training. Then Professor Robert McKersie, Sloan School of Management and his co-presenter, Nancy Peace, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Education Partnership and an experienced labor mediator and arbitrator, will be talking about joint training for labor and management bargaining teams. Professor Larry Susskind from MIT will serve as the moderator. Several members of the Pedagogy Initiative will be asked to comment.

The Faculty Dinner Seminar will be held at the Harvard Faculty Club, beginning with an informal reception at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner and discussion from 7 – 9 pm. Robust discussion is encouraged.

RSVP by Monday, November 25
