Randall Library & DEeL Virtual Coffee Hour - Introduction to Data Literacy
Join panelists Lynnee Argabright (Randall Library), Jennifer Sias (DEeL), Sam Zelick (Randall Library), and Sasha Canan (CHHS) for this interactive coffee hour where we focus on an introduction to data literacy. Data literacy is “the component of information literacy that enables individuals to access, interpret, critically assess, manage, handle and ethically use data” (Prado and Marzal 2013). Gaining data literacy helps navigate steps involved in incorporating data into research, work, as well as everyday situations. It can help inform how to make data-driven decisions. During this Virtual Coffee Hour session, panelists will discuss how to develop data competencies, how data literacy can be incorporated into instruction, and how a data literate society impacts the future of research and the public good. Attendees are welcome to ask questions throughout!
