On May 10th Tree Bressen and Sue Woehrlin co-hosted a telephone presentation on the card deck with some 45 NCDD members around the country. Tree and Sue shared the history of the Group Pattern Language Project (and specifically the process that birthed the cards), lead participants through a couple of reflective exercises with the category keystone cards from the deck, addressed possible uses of the cards, and then facilitated an open-ended discussion. Several other project members participated, including John Abbe, Raines Cohen, Betsy Morris and Amy Lenzo. Toward the end of the call Sandy Heierbacher (NCDD director) invited the assembled group to brainstorm sugestions for how the cards might be used at the upcoming national NCDD conference in Seattle this coming October. All in all, a very lively event!
