Critical & creative approaches to building a 'data culture'

A workshop which will present established and innovative approaches and tools to building a 'data culture' across teams and embedding data-use in organisation-wide learning cultures.

This workshop will cover specific examples of how data literacy and data culture tools and strategies can be put in place in foundations and grant-making organisations, before we spend time considering how they can be implemented in your individual settings.
This workshop will be of most use to staff that are: a) using (or would like to use) data regularly; or b) are developing organisation-wide approaches to monitoring and evaluation; or c) have a vision for the strategic use of data in their organisation, and the authority to implement this.

In order to get the most out of this workshop, it would be helpful if to bring along an example of when you have used data and evidence to facilitate, or as part of, organisation-wide learning sessions or projects.
