About the Instructor:
Duke Fisher has been a trainer of conflict resolution and restorative justice since 1988. In 1999, he founded Learning Laboratories, an independent training venture that finds creative ways to address difficult topics, including workshops on restorative justice, family conflict resolution, responding to discrimination, and building collaborative teams to assemble care for a differently-abled child. He has brought powerful workshops to schools, universities, conferences, prisons, agencies, and to graduate students at Hofstra Law School, where Duke was until recently a Special Professor of Law. Duke is the 2007 “Lawrence P. Cooke Peace Innovator Award” recipient recognized for his never ending search for creative methods to support effective learning. He has a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
