The first webinar in the new FLA/FACRL Webinar Series is coming up on Thursday, February 18 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm.
Title: Correlation does not equal Causality: Data Literacy for Everyone
Speaker: Nick Ruhs, Florida State University
Description: With the vast amount of statistics and infographics now available at the touch of a finger or click of a mouse, it is often difficult to determine which ones offer an accurate representation of a topic. This interactive workshop will provide an overview of data literacy and reproducibility concepts, and will outline various strategies for determining the integrity and authenticity of data that one might come across in a research article, on social media, or in the news. The overall aim of this session is to give attendees the knowledge needed to determine the purpose for which statistical and pictorial data is being used and whether conclusions using the data are sound.
