Nowadays it is possible to find answers to almost any question within seconds using your smartphone or computer, regardless of whether the source is trustworthy, includes robustly designed studies or the data is carefully interpreted. With the wide availability and amount of data out there, data literacy becomes a vital skill to judge information qualitatively and quantitatively. Competency to evaluate data out there also feeds into many societal trends like vaccination readiness and presents our educational systems with new challenges.
The natural sciences have cultivated a systematic approach to data for centuries. The Science Education Day 2022 has therefore been entitled “A World of Data”, offering keynotes and workshops to address the challenges and opportunities of this new world. Experts will offer insights into data evaluation, representation and interpretation as well as receiving input for their work communicating and education pupils on the topic of data literacy.

Please note that the program will be held in German if not stated otherwise.
