During the project three Learning Teaching Training events in the form of summer schools on Data Literacy will be organized, each focusing on a different topic and taking place in a different Partner Country (Germany, Netherlands, Hungary).
In the course of these international summer schools students and lecturers will work on a number of generic Data Literacy issues e.g. “Evaluation and Ensuring Quality of Data and Sources”, “Data Manipulation” or “Data Interpretation” within a specific context and in a cooperative manner. Specific contexts within the summer schools are open government data, health data and research data, and open science. In addition to input from external experts, students – cooperating in international teams – are also actively involved in working on different problems. Thus, the participating students will develop solutions and present them.
The most important results are enhanced students’ and teachers’ Data Literacy competencies. Students as well as teachers will develop increasing Data Literacy competencies within their courses, through self-paced learning activities in the learning lab and by attending additional training activities. This will enlarge student’s ability of collaborative learning, critical thinking, solving highly interdepend and complex problems.
The first Summer School on Open Government Data will take place from September 28th to October 2nd 2020. Due to the current Corona infection situation it will be held in a virtual environment with participation from all four partner universities.
Further information will follow in the upcoming weeks.
