  • How to achieve digital maturity? - talk and final event of the DataLiteracy@OWL project

    In our digital world, data is everywhere. Learning how to use and analyse this data is also part of it. Data literacy education in schools, universities and further education plays a crucial role. In this context, Leena Simon, net philosopher and activist, will give a talk on Wednesday 8th November at 17:30 on what digital literacy is and how it can be achieved. The title of the talk is: "Digitale Mündigkeit. Wie wir mit einer neuen Haltung die Welt retten können." After the talk in room X-E0-001, there will be an opportunity to discuss the demands of education in the digital world with media educator Prof. Dr. Dan Verständig and lawyer Prof. Dr. Daniel Antonius Hötte. This is the final event of the DataLiteracy@OWL project, and you are all cordially invited!


  • New publication: Motivating students to code

    The publication "Einstieg ins Coding mit Jupyter Notebook - Tipps aus der Lehrpraxis" focuses on how professors can motivate students to code. Written by Marcel Gemander, coordinator of Data Literacy Education at the University of Bielefeld, the publication gives practical tips on how professors can introduce students with no previous programming experience to coding with Python. The tips focus on how teachers can use Jupyter Notebooks to help students get started programming with Python. The tips cover aspects such as how to use Jupyter Notebooks, explain how Jupyter Notebooks work, address file organisation, and show the benefits of using Jupyter Notebooks to motivate students to practice hands-on. The publication is available on the working group's website: Data Literacy of the "Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V.". In the form of a blog, the working group shares various experiences in teaching data literacy at German universities.
