Message from Sandy Heierbacher, NCDD Director:

I wanted to let everyone know that the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation’s Resource Center is back up and running (yay!) at

The Resource Center describes and categorizes close to 2,400 resources — including dialogue guides, facilitation tools, dialogue & deliberation methods, online tools, case studies, videos, higher ed programs, articles, NCDD publications, and more.

Feel free to add the RSS feed, which is , to your RSS readers, facebook walls, linkedin accounts, etc!

You can also do 2 other things… 1. Comment on ANY resource in the Resource Center (with corrections, your thoughts about a tool or method, etc.) 2. Submit resources you think we should add by using the form at (I’d love to get more resources added about AI!)
