Data Literacy: Datenkompetenz als Schlüsselqualifikation im 21. Jahrhundert

Wed Nov 24 2021 02:00 pm

Data literacy is defined as the ability to deal with data in a planned manner and to be able to use and question it consciously in the respective context.

Due to the advancing digitization and datafication of society, competencies for handling data are becoming more and more important, not only in science but also in other areas of work and for social participation. It's not just about being able to collect and process data yourself. We are confronted with large amounts of data every day, which, among other things, should help us to assess developments in the world or to make personal or professional decisions. Basic skills in handling and understanding data are therefore important in order to generate knowledge from the available data and to be able to make well-founded decisions.

This coffee lecture is dedicated to the question of what it means to be "data literate" and why (research) data management plays an important role in this.
