Tech and data exploration in teaching organizing: lessons on teams and coaching

Description

The past year has challenged many of us to shift our organizing and training work into the virtual space. 

But these constraints have also led to exciting innovations and adaptations, and further possibilities for the way we organize and teach others to organize! Over the coming months, LCN will host a series of sessions dedicated to exploring lessons around using tech and data in our approach to organizing, 

Our first session will showcase the tech and data explorations of the teaching team of Organizing: People, Power, Change, a semester-long course on organizing taught by Marshall Ganz at the Harvard Kennedy School in which students form teams and launch organizing campaigns.

In spring 2021, as the teaching team worked to adapt the course to an entirely online format, they also asked themselves: How can they use tech to facilitate relationship building? How can they leverage data to capture and understand what teams go through as they navigate their learning journey?

To answer these questions, the team incorporated a data intelligence and analysis perspective – leading to insights on team formation and dynamics, the impact of coaches and coaching, and how data can inform the way we teach organizing.

On September 22nd, we will be joined by Maggie Hughes, Toni Kokenis, Emily Lin, and Caleb Schwartz from the teaching team, who will share their lessons from their explorations with tech and data to understand the process and impact of how teams organize, and the role of coaching in the learning journey.
