Data Informed Learning

November 12th, 2015

Clarence Maybee, InforAsist postermation Literacy Specialist, presented a poster with Lisa Zilinski from Carnegie Mellon University at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting on data informed learning. Based on informed learning (Bruce, 2008), data informed learning shifts the focus from acquiring generic data-related skills to learning how to use data in disciplinary contexts. The aim of this project is to develop a data literacy framework for higher education that places learning about using data in the context of disciplinary learning.
