Data is a Team Sport

May 16, 2017 in Announcement

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 data literacy practitioners with particular expertise within the ecosystem (e.g., investigative journalism, advocacy and activism, academia, government, etc) in conversation. 

You can join the conversation (see RSVP below) and provide inputs into the research we are conducting. During each online conversation we will give participants an opportunity to ask questions and share their own insights on the topic.

Our first conversation will be take place on May 25th at 3pm UK with:

  • Rahul Bhargava, MIT Media Lab, will discuss his methodologies that take individuals from spreadsheets to drawing and how this lead to 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 her various roles as a data literacy practitioner.
