On September 6th and 7th, 2019 the DATAFIED project team participated in the workshop “Exploring the Datafication, Digitalization and Automatization of Educational Governance and Practice” of the Helmut-Schmidt-University Hamburg. The workshop was organized by Sigrid Hartong and Annina Förschler within the framework of the DFG project “Bildungsdatenmanagement – Neue Wissens-, Interdependenz- und Einflussstrukturen im Kontext der Digitalisierung von Educational Governance“. The agenda of both days was filled with interesting lectures of various international researchers as well as discussion and question rounds on the topic of data archiving, digitisation and automation of educational policy aspects.
In addition, the workshop was divided into four sessions and thus offered a broad spectrum:
- International perspectives on the multiple dynamics of data infrastructures in education
- Discussing effects of datafication and digitalization for school management and the teaching profession
- Methodologies and methods of (researching) big data in education
- Broadening the Scope
The workshop was a great opportunity to discuss current topics on an international level as well as to establish and intensify contacts. Thank you very much for the invitation!
