This workshop is for anyone interested in facilitating effective communication about important issues.  The principles of facilitation for NIF discussions carry over readily to any small group discussion.

This training equips you not only for NIF use, but for other discussion opportunities (including, for classroom teachers, reflection in a service learning setting). William Muse, president emeritus of Auburn University and past president of the National Issues Forum, will present the training.

The National Issues Forum has developed a wide range of public policy discussion workbooks, covering topics relevant to each of us today.  These carefully designed guides allow a facilitator to guide a small group discussion about difficult issues. Learn more at
