ODNNY presents a talk with Phil LeNir where he will give you insight into the 70/20/10 framework and how you can use it for you own practice.

July 17, 2014 5:30 PM   through   8:00 PM

“It’s well understood in the field of learning and development that 70% of learning is informal, on the job, and experience based, 20% is coaching and mentoring, and 10% is comprised of formal learning interventions and structured courses. But what does this mean in practice?”

Co-founded by Phil LeNir and Henry Mintzberg in 2007, CoachingOurselves is a methodology for managers that builds community, stimulates exchange of perspectives, and encourages team cohesion. CoachingOurselves offers a novel approach to developing leaders and transforming organizations based on the 70/20/10 framework; it uses tools to explore a wide range of topics created by more than forty leading management thinkers including Henry Mintzberg, Marshall Goldsmith, David Cooperrider, and Michael Beers. ”



Columbia offers a chance to learn data technologies for the purposes of journalism, the humanities, and the social sciences



The Lede Program, a collaboration between Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism and Department of Computer Science, is a new post-bac certification course that teaches data, code, and algorithms to journalists, researchers, designers, and others with interest in the digital humanities.

An Info Session will be held this Thursday, April 3rd, from 1-2 p.m. at the Stabile Student Center in the Journalism Building at 2950 Broadway, and will post a video of the event on their website.


The Lede Program: An Introduction to Data Practices

Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism is launching The Lede Program, a post-bac certification course in partnership with the Department of Computer Science, offering hands-on training in data, code, and algorithms for investigative and creative work.

Social science researchers, designers, policy analysts, and other students with interest in the digital humanities are encouraged to apply to either the “Lede-12” summer program or two-semester “Lede-24” program. No prior experience with data is required.

Students will leave with a portfolio of digital work highlighting their new skills in four areas:

•   Computing: Master a scripting language like Python or Ruby; use code to gather, analyze, and present data

•   Data and Databases: Develop computer-assisted strategies to collect, structure, store, and share data

•   Algorithms: Learn to critically analyze computation, assessing biases, omissions, and best practices

•   Platform: Explore how data, code, and algorithms affect creative practices and shape lines of inquiry
