DaLiCo Summer School 2020 – Follow-up report
Dr. Marlies van Steenbergen and Cathelijn Timmers (Hogeschool Utrecht, The Netherlands) particularly raised awareness of ethical issues. They demonstrated tools and techniques that sharpen the view on controversial backgrounds when dealing with data and help to include basic ethical questions in the planning and design of data projects.
The successful composition of the teams further promoted competencies and enabled mutual learning. The decision to dispense with web tools for data manipulation and simple statistics, which hide the actual processes of data manipulation, proved to be exactly right with regard to the goal of promoting data competence and critical thinking.
On the other hand, the provision of Excel templates (e.g. for the creation of a new index) has taken away the fears of individual participants about statistics. Some teams focused on data research in their projects and used the templates for analysis. More ambitious teams have used other methods based on this template (nearest neighbour).
More difficult than expected has been the acquisition of the participants themselves. The DaLiCo team had assumed that they would have more applicants than places at a workshop with proven experts and coaching in small groups, which was free of charge for the participants. In fact, with the switch to the virtual environment and postponing into the fall, neither the university in Debrecen (Hungary) nor in Hamburg were able to find interested PhD students for the Summer School. In Hamburg, it was the university-wide distribution of the call that generated a broad echo and interest, especially among the group of international students. The other students – according to a preliminary interpretation – are obviously too involved in their respective courses of study, so that the benefits of extracurricular activities are not immediately apparent or the time available simply does not allow it.
Ultimately, a central goal of the DaLiCo project is to strengthen data literacy at the partner universities as a whole and to network activities. The results and experiences from the Summer School will be useful for future project activities. The HAW Hamburg team will also approach individual colleagues as well as faculties and departments in the coming weeks. We are looking forward to your experiences and ideas on this topic.
