Overview of Session

A series of short activities and presentations to get you thinking about what it means to have scientific data literacy and how we might design learning environments that support the development of scientific data literacy.

Use the following questions to reflect on this session:

  • What did I need to know and be able to do (knowledge and skills) to work successfully with this data?
  • How accessible was the data (conceptually, technically)?
  • In what ways did this data reflect features of its scientific origins and use?
