3rd International Facilitators Training School: Structured Dialogic Design (SDD) Process

A Cypriot non-governmental organization, Future Worlds Center, and the U.S. based Institute for 21st Century Agoras, invites all who are interested in becoming active Structured Dialogic Design Dialogue Managers to learn more about the science of SDD® at the 3rd International Facilitators Training School in Nicosia, Cyprus from 25-27 July 2011.

SDDP imageStructured Dialogic Design (SDD)® is a democratic approach to facilitation and mediation where all participants have an equal opportunity to voice their ideas and opinions. The use of the Cogniscope II software helps to structure these ideas, cluster, and map their mutual interdependencies.

The training will include theoretical foundations exploration, practical applications, re-discovering the science of structured dialogue, role-playing, lectures, and virtual lectures (webinars). The school intends to offer 3 credits towards the professional certification program. Learn more and register at www.sddp-international.org.
