David W. Johnson awarded Jeffrey Z. Rubin Theory-To-Practice Award at IACM

David W. Johnson receives Jeffrey Z. Rubin Theory-To-Practice Award at 2010 International Association for Conflict Management Conference in Boston.
This year, the International Association for Conflict Management honored Dr. David W. Johnson with the Jeffrey Z. Rubin Theory-To-Practice Award. As described by IACM, this award is given “to unique individuals whose professional contributions emphasize their ability to move effectively and skillfully between theory and practice in their professional activities.” Johnson was recognized for his continued practice of developing theory, validating theory through research, and applying the findings of that research. His work is focused on three main areas: Social Interdependence Theory and Cooperative Learning; Constructive Controversy; and Conflict Resolution and Peer Mediation. Johnson’s work on Social Interdependence Theory and Cooperative Learning is based on Morton Deutsch’s work, and has been used to train educators for over 40 years. Constructive Controversy has also been used in educational settings, as well as in organizations and businesses around the world for instructional and decision-making purposes. Johnson’s peer mediation methods have also been used at every educational level, and have been nationally recognized for their effectiveness.

Dr. Johnson was a student of Professor Morton Deutsch, and a contributor to The Handbook of Conflict Resolution. The ICCCR congratulates Dr. Johnson on his award, and hopes that this important work continues to be applied in many educational and organizational settings.
