Integrating Data Literacy into Lower Level Undergraduate Instruction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As data becomes more prevalent, data literacy for undergraduate students is becoming essential. Data literacy is an extension of information literacy and is not something that requires a deep understanding of statistics; rather it is an understanding that data is like other information and can be used, presented and manipulated. Librarians have often focused on data literacy for more advanced students but this interactive workshop will focus on teaching lower level undergraduate students basic data literacy skills, and include a data literacy teaching toolkit and several short activities that library instructors can implement in one-shot information literacy sessions.

Participants will:
  • Be able to explain what data literacy is and its importance for lower level undergraduate students.
  • Participate in a data literacy activity and have the opportunity to formulate their own activities through group participation.
