Deadlines | Listing | Enrollment | Payment | Cancellation

Winter Session workshop enrollment is processed through Canvas Catalog, the university’s all-in-one non-credit workshop enrollment system that includes a payment gateway and links to ELMS, UMD’s online learning environment. Workshop enrollment is limited and processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Non-credit workshops may be offered in face-to-face, online, or blended learning environments. ELMS provides access to static workshop content (syllabi, schedules, announcements, etc.) and to interactive tools (e.g., discussion groups, live chats, and online assessments). 

Workshops do not post to the UMD transcript and do not count towards a student's academic record. Neither grade nor credit is earned. Students do not receive a University ID card and will not have access to University facilities such as recreation, transportation, and campus events. Workshop students may access UMD Libraries as “Visitors”; see https://www.lib.umd.edu/about/visitors. All students who enroll in UMD non-credit workshops are subject to the rules, policies and regulations found at registrar.umd.edu and www.president.umd.edu/administration/policies.

  • Workshop Fee: $1,086.
  • An intensive evening and weekend program of experiential learning and new perspectives on ways to resolve conflict and build a lasting peace, in day-to-day local situations as well as in complex national and international conflicts. The workshop aims to develop the concepts and professional skills needed to facilitate transformation of complex societal conflicts, including ethnic, religious or cultural tensions, using techniques of multi-track diplomacy. These techniques, applicable at all levels of society, provide an essential complement to official (“first track”) diplomacy and police work, from conflicts in families or local communities, to dealing with political instability, terrorism, or insurgent activities. Offered in a face-to-face learning environment. 
  • CATOES003 is strongly recommended as a concurrent workshop.  
  • Meets January 2-22, 2018: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 6:00pm - 9:15pm, and one Friday, January 19, 6-9:15pm. (Snow Day make-up if needed: January 20-21)

CATOES003 Multi-Track Diplomacy, January 2-22, 2018

  • Workshop Fee: $1,086.
  • An intensive evening and weekend program of experiential learning and new perspectives on developing skills multi-track diplomacy and applying them to search for common ground in the current conflict in Israel-Palestine, specifically addressing the dispute over the Temple Mount/Haram Al-Sharif at the heart of both national identities. The workshop, featuring a simulation engaging influential Israeli and Palestinian civil society representatives, will be co-facilitated by experienced Israeli-American and Muslim-American professionals, Professor Edward (Edy) Kaufman, and Professor John Davies. In an effort to bridge the negotiation gap between parties that remain caught in cycles of confrontation, unofficial channels will be explored using leading-edge interactive techniques. New insights from the workshop, arrived at through trust building, skills building (in areas such as nonviolent communication, prejudice reduction and integrative problem solving) and consensus building, will provide out-of-the-box policy options to inform ongoing multi-track work in the region. Offered in a face-to-face learning environment.
