Data Literacy 101: “One Screen of Data”

About this event

TechYukon presents Data Literacy 101: “One Screen of Data” with Paul Kishchuk from Vector Research

Understanding what data is (and what data is not) is key to being able to make evidence-based decisions. Yet, it’s easy to be confused by all the technical jargon and hype around data. In this hands-on, one-hour session, participants will use their smart phones to generate fresh data and learn what evidence-ready data actually looks like. The generated data will then be visualized to show how only a single computer screen of data is needed to accurately describe program performance.

About Paul Kishchuk:

Paul is a public finance economist with bachelors and masters degrees in economics and 25 years of applied experience in the field. He established Vector Research, an independent economic research consultancy, in 1999 and has completed more than 250 research assignments for a diverse array of private and public sector clients. Upon discovering in 2011 that big data software tools work just fine on small data sets, he broadened his consulting practice to include data wrangling and analytics. Paul is the President of the Yukon Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society and is also the Tableau User Group Leader for Whitehorse.
