A guest lecturer for teaching faculty . . .
Virtual Visiting Professor
Daniel Dana, PhD, the "Conflict Doctor"
Do you teach courses in conflict, dispute resolution, mediation, communication, leadership, organizational behavior, human resources, management, team development, group dynamics, human relations, or related subjects at a college or university?
Invite Dan Dana to be a virtual guest lecturer in your class. With webinar technology, geography is not a barrier. The standard webinar instructional design may be modified to accommodate student participation, Q&A, student papers/projects, and other features.
- Select a topic that best fits your class subject and students' interests.
- Send email to Dan to establish personal communication, discuss your course, and select a date and hour.
- Once these arrangements are made, register for a private webinar.
- The regular fee for a private webinar is $495. An invoice can be sent by email so you can coordinate payment by your institution. Alternatively, that fee may be waived by any of the following alternatives:
- Adoption of Dr. Dana's book Managing Differences for your students (minimum 30 copies @ $19.95/each)
- Purchase of at least 12 copies @ $49/each of the CD-based training in Managing Workplace Conflict, which includes web-based testing and reporting of test scores
- Any combination of the two that sums to at least $600
Holding the Ph.D. in psychology, Dan served for several years as a professor of organizational behavior at the University of Hartford (Connecticut) Graduate School of Business, and has held faculty appointments at Syracuse University and several other institutions. (A former student once called him "Doctor Conflict," and the moniker stuck!)
