Participant feedback...

“I found the experience to be very empowering in my role as an ISF. The participants were very open in sharing their ideas and listening to the ideas of others. I felt the sessions were helpful in providing some good ideas on how to approach educators. the 3 part sessions enabled me to put these ideas into practice and share my findings with the discussion groups.”
Nell (Hunter ISA NSW)

Faciliator feedback...

“Thank you for the opportunity to facilitate a discussion group. I found it both enjoyable and rewarding. The ISF Hub Team were a great support. I think the "GoToMeeting" Discussion Groups will be a valuable experience for all ISFs who participate. It is great for ISFs to have the opportunity to network, peer mentor and discuss aspects of their role as ISF with other ISFs. I believe the sharing of experiences and discussions around how they do their role increased their understanding and confidence.”
Debbie  - NISSP Applications Officer
