This COPLAC digital liberal arts course is focused on exploring the nature of social conflict and exploring examples of conflict resolution. Our students will be designing websites that illustrate conflict resolution in their home communities.
Here are links to the sites we’ll be looking at in class today, so you have them for future reference!
