Digital literacy. Data literacy. Those are just buzz phrases. Or are they?
What degree of expertise should students and faculty have in order to
effectively wrangle data and/or work with digital assets? What are the
basic requirements in the modern workplace or laboratory? It’s no longer a
question of mastering word processing or spreadsheets. Whether it is data
science or digital humanities, what enables us and qualifies us to work
with digital assets? And since data and digital literacy have varying skill
requirements for different populations, how do we know what to set about

The second portion of this two-part event is scheduled for September 20,
2017. With the first segment having identified gaps in understanding, this
follow-up segment will feature case studies from institutions that have
assumed leadership roles in training students and faculty in emerging tools
and methodologies for working with digital materials and generating new
digital assets.
