What is a Negotiation Film?

Take advantage of a negotiation film to enhance your learning about negotiation skills, techniques, and to study notable negotiations from the past.

Negotiation film and video resources can help convey lessons in a different way than a lecture, discussion, or even role-play. Video scenarios help students grasp the subtle nuances negotiation requires, in a realistic context.

Similarly, a negotiation film may offer insights and lessons about how to negotiate in various cross-cultural contexts that just aren’t possible with in a lecture format. Furthermore, you can use negotiation film and video, along with other distance learning formats, in an asynchronous approach to facilitate knowledge sharing outside the constraints of time and place among a group of people.

Especially as schools and universities develop alternate learning schedules in the face of a global pandemic that often might involve mixes of in-person and online classes, or be entirely in a remote format, making sure students continue their learning outside of the class setting is becoming more crucial than ever.

Additionally, exercises that engage students and require them to put their in-class learning to use outside of class, whether that class is online or in person, can help them maximize opportunities to put their skills into practice.
