Data is a Team Sport

- May 16, 2017 in announcement, online conversations, research

A series of online conversations examining the data literacy ecosystem.

In this series we seek to capture learnings about the ever-changing field of data literacy and how it is evolving in response to concepts like ‘big data’, ‘post-fact’ and ‘data cofusion’.  This open research project by School of Data, in collaboration with FabRiders, will produce a series of podcasts and blog posts as we engage in conversation with data literacy practitioners with particular expertise within the ecosystem (e.g., investigative journalism, advocacy and activism, academia, government, etc). Our first conversation will be take place on May 25th at 3pm UK with:
  • Rahul Bhargava, MIT Media Lab, will discuss his approaches in getting students to go from spreadsheets to drawing and the development of databasic.io
  • Lucy Chambers, School of Data Staff Alumni currently with Tech to Human, will reflect on the  challenges faced when starting School of Data and  to various roles as a data literacy practitioner.
Your hosts: Please RSVP to get information on how to join the conversation Flattr this!
