Abstract Proposals for the accreditation of mediators have progressed recently with the acceptance of plans for a national mediator accreditation system. Under the scheme, mediators will be asked to complete learning in a variety of areas in order to meet accreditation requirements. Yet, many mediators are trained through short courses, often three to five days in duration. This may mean that the opportunity to learn deeply of theoretical issues, such as power regarding the practice of mediation, is constrained. This article explores the possibility of providing online learning to supplement face-to-face teaching in mediation courses. The benefits of engaging mediation students in active learning opportunities online are highlighted and the teaching and learning strategies of online mediation role-plays is discussed.
