OTPIC Officially Retired
As of December 2, 2005, the Online Training Program on Intractable Conflict (OTPIC) has been officially retired, and is no longer open to new registrations.
The successor to OTPIC is a course called Dealing Constructively with Intractable Conflicts (DCIC). The new curriculum is built around one of our major projects, Beyond Intractability, and offers a much more extensive and informative set of learning materials than that available through OTPIC.

Another on-line discussion tool is a simple list server. It can be thought of as a community mailing list in which all members of the community can easily e-mail all other members of the community. Two things make this different from the thousands of junk mailing lists which plague our lives. First, participants make a conscious (and revocable) decision to join the list because they want to receive the information it provides. Second, participants agree to only send messages that are likely to interest list members. Possible list serve messages include: publication announcements, conference announcements, calls for papers, inquiries about job opportunities for graduating students, calls for collaborators, requests for book recommendations, etc. When replying to a list serve message, it is best to reply to the specific individual sending the message unless it is felt that others are likely to be interested in the response.

Still another discussion tool is an online documents page on which participants can post the following types of information:
You can also send us materials on a disk or as an e-mail attachment and we will post it. If you do this, we request that you follow our Guidelines for Web Contributors. In addition, we would like a title and a short, two or three line description of each item to be posted.

If you have one or more web links that are likely to be of interest to training program users you can send them to us in an e-mail message. Each link should have a short title and a two line description. You can also post links to the links section of the discussion group.
