Effectiveness of learning is determined by:

  1. 10% is induced by knowledge transfer.
    This is the classic way of teaching.
    The mediation course offers the required knowledge (legal, sociological and psychological insights) and skills (communication, negotiation)
  2. 20% is induced by practicing the theory with feedback. Examples include case discussions and role plays.
    The mediation training ensures extensive and intensive discussion of the experience gained through extensive case discussions and role plays.
  3. 70% is induced and therefore effectively integrated and applied by applying ‘on the job’ with guidance and appropriate feedback.
    Within the framework of intervision, supervision and continuous training, the opportunity is offered to discuss, evaluate and deepen experiences from one’s own practice.
