Two NCDD members who are respected scholars in this field – Francesca Polletta and Caroline Lee – are administering an important survey of dialogue and deliberation professionals. If enough professionals in D&D and public engagement respond to this survey, the data gathered will be of incredible value for our field.
The field of public dialogue and deliberation is growing dramatically– so dramatically, in fact, that no one fully knows what the field looks like:
- Who is doing public dialogue and deliberation work?
- What forms is their work taking?
- What common challenges are they facing?
- How would they like to see the field develop?
Caroline and Francesca are two sociologists who want to find answers to those questions by asking you, the experts. They believe that your insights will help to strengthen the field, and plan to share the data they collect with the NCDD network. The survey at the link below will take about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Your answers will be anonymous, but if you complete the survey they will enter a charitable organization of your choice in a raffle for a $200 donation.
The survey is up now at https://opinio.lafayette.edu:443/opinio/s?s=1176 and I encourage all of you who do dialogue & deliberation work to take the time to complete it asap.
