New to D&D? Start here:? What are dialogue and deliberation and how do they interrelate? What kinds of organizations & programs are fostering D&D? Where can I get trained in D&D facilitation?
Iraq Crisis Resources for D&D Leaders:? We have converted the data that we collected via the recent NCDD Iraq Crisis Forum (on D&D programs on Iraq, tips & resources for facilitators, encouraging youth D&D, background info about the crisis, etc.) into a new resource for our visitors' convenience.
Don't miss Cecile Andrews' commentary on the main page of the NCDD site. Cecile writes informally about her experience with Simplicity Circles and other dialogue-related work.
