RDM 14: Teaching Data Literacy through an Escape Room

This data literacy escape room will teach graduate students in disciplines of the health sciences how to manage data ethically. The game will serve as one component in a series of data literacy modules, which will fill a gap in the current graduate school curriculum by addressing data management in a systematic way. The game will be designed to meet learning objectives in an innovative way to engage students beyond the classroom setting, based on established research. This project hopes to add to this literature with positive results. Students will learn best practices for managing data during the various stages of the data life cycle. This project will support NNLM’s mission of promoting data literacy and increasing data management skills and awareness.
