Using Blogs in Teaching Negotiation: A Technical and Intercultural Postscript

Kenneth Ian MACDUFF, Singapore Management University


This article reexamines an earlier experiment in the use of blogs in teaching negotiation when undertaken in a different cultural environ ment. I briefly examine two core factors — technical competence and cultural preferences in communication — as well as a student prefer ence to reserve the use of social media for purely social and informal communications. Parallels are also drawn with the technical and cultural contexts of developments in online dispute resolution.
