Structured Dialogic Design® is implemented online through WebScope® Technology. The approaches share fundamental approaches; however, online applications do not have the full range of face-to-face dialogue exchanges. In efforts to align the face-to-face and the online approaches, accommodations to the original process have been made. This page introduces tools used in the online application of structured dialogic design methodology.
