  5. 5. Data Literacy - Outcomes We split into groups to start working on the answers to four questions: ● What is Data Literacy ● Why does Data Literacy matter? ● What Data Literacy projects should we work on? ● How do we build a Data Literacy community of practice?
  6. 6. What is Data LIteracy? ● Data Literacy is…enabling a community to take advantage of data ● it’s skills, attitudes, enablers, awareness ● it’s an attribute of community (individual can play different roles in different communities) ● it’s contextualised
  7. 7. Why does Data Literacy matter? ● Re-frame as why does Data Illiteracy matter? What are the challenges of Data Illiteracy; breaking down assumptions about that will help us figure out what is important. ● power ● ability to participate
  8. 8. What Data Literacy projects should we work on? ● Collaborative research ● Measuring the impact of DL initiatives in the long term ● What are the essential DL concepts – what needs to be taught – not skills that will be redundant in 20 years ● Individual vs group competencies ● How might organisations assess DL levels amongst their staff? ● What are affordancies? ● Can you improve the quality of data input by getting staff to work with the outputs of data, could this transfer to other communities, could it make people more excellent
  9. 9. How do we build a Data Literacy community of practice? ● What are the building blocks? ● Why are we doing it and who should be involved? ● Do you build the community and attract the right people or do you get the right people for a community to form round? ● EDSA have gone through LinkedIn groups which have data in their titles and curated a list of the most active and largest community groups rather than start again ● ACTION: Attract DL communities rather than start from the bottom – CP’s list of LinkedIn groups will be on their website ● FB group ● What is role of professional associations and events like this for convening groups? ● Who should we be talking to, who are the stakeholders
