Conflict management and class exercises

In the spring I will again be teaching a class on conflict management. More than one colleague has expressed puzzlement as to why I would teach this class, but I really enjoy it. While I, and a few students, might enjoy discussions on the historical nuances of technology or reference works, conflict management is relevant to everyone – and I do get to discuss Wikipedia NPOV and good faith! I have developed two exercises for understanding cognitive priming on cooperation/competition (i.e., prisoners dilemma) and integrative bargaining that might be of use to others.
