42895 Data Literacy



Data literacy is the basic ability to read, understand and represent data in a given context. It also enables professionals to describe the use case, application and resulting value and communicate to the stakeholders in a clear, appropriate way. Data literacy can be seen as learning to communicate in a new shared language of data and is now a core skill for any organisation working with data.

This subject introduces the student into the world of data and basic concepts required to work in a data-minded organization; it can act as an on-ramp to further study in data science, analytics or statistics.
