Want to learn more about data literacy?

This blogpost sets out the ODI’s thinking on data literacy. It explains what data literacy is, and explores why teaching people to code or draw graphs in spreadsheets isn’t enough. Businesses need to help people develop their critical thinking skills so that they and their customers get the most out of data.

What is ODI Learning Month?

National Learning and Development Month is a global event celebrated every October, that encourages people to learn and build brand new skills. In support and celebration of this, the ODI has our very own Learning Month that we run in tandem, ahead of our annual summit.

Each year we focus on different topics. This year to coincide with the theme of Summit 2021, we’ll be looking at how we’ve all become ‘data people’ – more conscious than ever of the data we produce, use and share. Our three key areas of education will be: Building healthy open data ecosystems, Leading data transformation, and Data governance and ethics. All brought to you via a mix of training, webinars, and podcasts. 

Our one-off programme has been created exclusively for Learning Month, and all of the training is available at a subsidised price. All the more reason to get stuck in and get learning!
