Digital and Data Literacy in Teaching Lab
How do digital formats affect subject content and teaching processes? How can students gain a critical and reflective understanding of data practices and their consequences? How should digital or hybrid teaching formats be designed beyond the pandemic? How does new technology-induced teacher and student role models look like?
Thinking digitally from the start
The Digital and Data Literacy in Teaching Lab( DDLitLab ) project considers these and other questions. It promotes digital teaching innovation related to data literacy education with teaching projects at all faculties and as part of the inter-faculty Studium Generale. We see digital approaches and spaces as a starting point for the program and not, as so often, as simply a supplement to the physical classroom.
DDLitLab pursues 2 goals:
- Further developing the Digital University Teaching Literacy (DUTy) of teachers. Together with the Hamburg Center for University Teaching and Learning (HUL), we want to further develop and create new structures in which teachers can expand their digital teaching skills to master and design digital and hybrid teaching formats even more confidently
- Promoting students' data literacy (data literacy education). We want to enable students to develop a critical understanding of data practices and handle data maturely in subject-specific, interdisciplinary, and knowledge-exchange-oriented courses.

Digital and Data Literacy in Teaching Lab is funded by the Stiftung Innovation in der Hochschullehre in the amount of €3.75 million for three years.
Just in time for the start of the project, the Datenwelten lecture series on data worlds began in Winter Semester 2021/22 in the Studium Generale. The series introduces students to the information technology and statistical basics of data science.
