Sharing and Learning groups

A Sharing and Learning group provides an opportunity for between 6 and 12 Mediators to come together and share their mediation experience while learning from each other. To be a member of a Sharing and Learning group you must be a paid up Trainee, Associate, Certified or Practitioner Member of the MII.

 

The activities which may be undertaken within a Sharing and Learning group include:

~       MII Certified Members presenting a mediation case for discussion as part of their requirements for Practitioner Member status

~       Each member of the group sharing mediation case experience to enable discussion and learning

~       Members (Associate/Certified/Practitioner) raising questions about their practice and areas of interest

~       Sharing information and learning through review of books, seminars and training events

 

Each Sharing and Learning group should:

~       Register with the MII using the Sharing and Learning Registration Form

~       Include at least one Certified Member of at least 3 years standing.

~       Record its activities to show attendance, agenda and presenter of case presentation

~       Note attendance at meetings 

~       Nominate a coordinator who is responsible for registering the group with the Registrar of the MII, circulating the agenda, recording minutes and details of attendees

 

Note: Where possible, an agenda should be circulated to the group not less than 7 days in advance of the meeting, and include details of time, date and venue of the meeting.

If you are interested in starting a Sharing and Learning group in your area, please forward a completed Sharing and Learning Registration Form for the attention of the Registrar.
