Abstract Teachers of mediation skills have often relied on videos to demonstrate mediation skills to prepare for role-plays. However, merely watching a video may not be as effective as also engaging with peers. The watching of video, combined with a subsequent online discussion of mediation skills, can enhance student learning as students become active rather than passive learners. After watching videos and discussing the mediation skills online, students can later be asked to demonstrate these skills in role-plays. This article discusses an example of the use of video and online discussion to scaffold learning about mediation. Students watch a video of a mediation, discuss the mediator interventions online and then undertake role-plays at an intensive weekend seminar. The scaffolding of student learning through watching the video and subsequent online discussion prepares students to demonstrate the mediation skills. The article concludes with a model of ADR learning with video that serves as a useful guide to implementing active video learning activities.
