Catherine Tufariello at the Project on Civic Reflection at Valparaiso University (Valparaiso, Indiana) wanted to share this announcement with the NCDD community (note the NCDD discount on this already reasonably-priced training!)…
From volunteers to educators, nonprofit leaders to community organizers, civic reflection discussions engage participants seeking to make a difference in the world. If you are interested in learning to facilitate civic reflection discussions, consider attending the Project on Civic Reflection’s next Facilitation Training Workshop. The two-day workshop, to be held at Columbia College in downtown Chicago, will begin at noon on Thursday, April 29, 2010 and conclude at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 30. Dues-paying NCDD members pay only $225, a 10% discount off the already low registration fee of $250.
Workshop participants receive hands-on facilitation skills taught by expert trainers, a facilitation handbook with tips and answers to frequently asked questions, a copy of The Civically Engaged Reader, and program consultation and ongoing support. In addition, we can provide continuing professional development credits (CPDU’s) to participating Illinois teachers.
