Mixed Reality Hub, a multidisciplinary research group from the University of Helsinki, is conducting two courses, which will teach students negotiation skills: tropical forest management and general negotiation skills. Courses are funded by the Digiloikka-program (University of Helsinki), Metsäkoulutus ry and Metsämiesten säätiö.
Especially the general negotiation skills -course fits well to various disciplines, as well as for supplement education. Many of the existing virtual courses lack pedagogic aspects, methods and meaningful content.
