The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) is "a hub, facilitative leader, and clearinghouse for a community of thousands of innovators." The site is packed with thousands of resources and covers best practices for the instigation of dialogue, deliberation, discussion, and the sharing of authentic ideas. The NCDD Beginner's Guide includes clarifying sections about what Dialogue and Deliberation (D&D) is, as well as a Quick Reference Glossary, and advice on how to run a D&D program, among other useful information. The Best-of-the-Best Resources tab narrows down the nearly 3,000 resources available on the site. From there, the search function (conveniently located under the phrase, "I'm Looking For...") allows readers to search the site by Resource Type (e.g. Assessment Tools, Big Picture Tools, Case Studies & Stories, Participatory Practices, and many others). Above all, these resources are designed to help people learn to facilitate meaningful discussion.
