Noam Ebner is co-author with Yael Efron of three E-PARCC simulations. He won first place awards for best teaching simulation in 2011 and 2014 for “Little Golano” and “FlashPoint: Syria 2014,” and an honorable mention for “Converging!,” at the Best Teaching Simulation Competition in 2007. “Little Golano” is a simulation that creates in-depth understanding of international conflict management and advanced skills in conflict resolution, medication, and negotiation. The “FlashPoint: Syria 2014” simulation is set in the context of the crisis in Syria, giving students an opportunity to develop skills in conflict analysis and resolution, collaboration, negotiation, and mediation. Converging!” is a one to three-day simulation that allows students to experience interest-based, collaborative problem solving within an international environment corresponding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Noam Ebner is a professor of negotiation and conflict resolution at Creighton University School of Law.
