Results from the DaLiCo project

During the project five interconnected activities haven been developed. All results are being presented here; the development of each result is explained in each result description.

IO 1: DaLiCo App

DaLiCo App is an integrated Web-application. It consists of a searchable collection of references of curated data literacy resources provided and regularly updated by the DaLiCo members. The resources are indexed with descriptors from a controlled vocabulary (DaLiCo Glossary) and assigned to categories from the DaLiCo Dimensions.                                   > Access to the DaLiCo App

The DaLiCo References result is part of the integrated Web-application DaLiCo app.

IO 1: DaLiCo Glossary and Dimensions

The DaLiCo Glossary is a collection of relevant key concepts in the field of data literacy (education) developed in cooperation with the partners from the DaLiCo project. DaLiCo Glossary is structured as a thesaurus following the DIN ISO 25964-1:2011. > Access to the DaLiCo Glossary

Integrated part of the Glossary is DaLiCo Dimensions, a suggestion for basic dimensions for the description of generic data literacy competences in the field of higher education. The dimensions address 6 core competencies (Data identification, Data understanding, Data use, Data reflexivity, Data managing, Data communication) roughly oriented towards the data life cycle. > Access to the DaLiCo Dimensions

IO 1: DaLiCo Data Literacy Knowledge Map

This result introduces the Data Literacy Knowledge Map as format/method for self-assessment and self-reflection on data literacy competencies. With the Data Literacy Knowledge Map, we apply methods of structuring and visualising a person’s information horizon as used in information behaviour research to the exploration of one’s own data literacy. This method can be used in the context of teaching, self-paced-learning, training or train the trainer courses.

DaLiCo Map Intermediate Report – Part 2 presents the results of research conducted as part of Intellectual Output 1 to identify gaps and needs in data literacy.

IO 2: DaLiCo Train the Trainer Programme

This result introduces the DaLiCo Train-the-Trainer programme in the field of data literacy. It consists of a methodological framework which is built up in a modular structure in an e-learning environment. The e-learning course is supplemented by an online handbook which provides tools to enhance the methodological framework of the trainings. Both the Handbook and the e-learning course are openly available.

IO 3: DaLiCo Virtual Learning Space

As result of IO 3, a virtual data literacy learning space for students has been created in the form of a prototype for an e-learning course. This learning space is the result of the cooperative project work of the DaLiCo partners. Concept, development, design, and use are described. > Access to the course

The DaLiCo Learning Space Canvas Model was developed within the process of this IO.

Learning objectives for the learning space have been formulated during the process of this IO. These objectives can be used as example by other HE institutions to plan data literacy learning spaces.

IO 4: DaLiCo Data Literacy Assessment

The Data Literacy Assessment is developed by the stakeholders of the DaLiCo project. The aim of the assessment is to provide insights in the level of data literacy as starting point for measuring and improvement.

Report of the research which was conducted within the framework of the DaLiCo project to conceptionalize the Data Literacy assessment tool. 

IO 5: DaLiCo Implementation Manual

This document is the Implementation Manual and shows the essentials of the concept how to introduce Data Literacy content at a university.

Summer Schools

Three summer schools were conducted as Learning Teaching Training (LTT) Events within the DaLiCo Project. The results and lessons learned are presented in form of a concept for transfer. This concept can be used by other HE institutions to plan data literacy training events.
