Keywords:media education, data science, critical data literacy
This paper discusses an explorative approach on strengthening critical data literacy using data science methods and a theoretical framing intersecting educational science and media theory. The goal is to path a way from data-driven to data-discursive perspectives of data and datafication in higher education. Therefore, the paper focuses on a case study, a higher education course project in 2019 and 2020 on education and data science, based on problem-based learning. The paper closes with a discussion on the challenges on strengthening data literacy in higher education, offering insights into data practices and the pitfalls of working with and reflecting on digital data.
