Announcing the Launch of the ’17 Key Traits of Data Literacy’ On-Demand Course & Self-Assessment!
When we first launched this business almost three years ago, we published an ebook titled 17 Key Traits of Data Literacy. The book describes 17 important traits that describe highly data literate individuals and it groups these traits into four different categories: Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes, and Behaviors. It features quotes contributed by some of our talented advisory board members, and it has gone on to become our most requested presentation to date. Thousands of people in user groups and corporate teams all over the world have followed along as they seek to wrap their minds around what it means to be highly data literate.
Well, we have big news today! We have turned this popular content into an on-demand course and interactive self-assessment to make it easier for ever more people to benefit from it.
You can read all about it on the course page, you can enroll to take it yourself starting today, or you can contact us to see how your group can benefit from this unique offering.
Beyond simply learning about the traits, this program guides you and your team members to conduct a self-assessment in order to identify your current strengths as well as your most significant data learning opportunities in the year ahead.
What Comes with the Course?
We’ve packed this course with valuable content for you. If you enroll in the course, here’s what you get:
- A digital copy of the book 17 Key Traits of Data Literacy
- Perpetual access to the 17 Key Traits on-demand course
- 1 hour and 11 minutes of instructional videos by Ben Jones
- 136 questions to help you assess your proficiency in each trait
- An interactive worksheet to help you pinpoint your growth opportunities
- 182 links to hand-selected resources for you to use on your development path
How Does the Self-Assessment Work?
17 traits is a lot of traits to consider! Luckily we don’t have to master each one. We work in teams so that we can complement each other and go even farther with data. But each of us needs to take stock of our own skills and where we need to be. The self-assessment portion of the program guides you through a series of questions to help you determine your current level of proficiency in each trait, as well as its importance to your own success in the near future. There is an interactive worksheet that you can use to enter your scores and see where each trait lies on a two-by-two grid which you can use to identify your most important growth opportunities.
How Much Does it Cost?
For individuals purchasing this program on our site, the cost is $59 per license. We’re running a 50% off launch month promotion, so through the end of November 2021, you can purchase access to the course for just $29.50! Use the code 17KEY50 at checkout to claim your discount.
Organizations who would like to purchase access for their teams can contact us for group pricing. Groups can choose to take the course on our online learning academy here at Data Literacy, or they can import the course directly into their own learning management system using either SCORM or Tin Can / xAPI formats. For large groups over 100 people, we would be delighted to offer an additional 30 minute introduction / orientation webinar with our CEO and course creator, Ben Jones.
