Data touches all of our lives, yet it is a vital skills that is often left out of formal education. So how can we make sure students are prepared to deal with the data they inevitably will encounter in their work and lives? This presentation aims to answer that question. The presentation will provide an overview of what data literacy is and explain why it is an important component of students education. We also will discuss how instructors can bring data literacy, in both small and large ways, in to their classroom, and provide some concrete examples.
