Introducing 2023 “Literacy Lightning Talks” Speaker, Julie Marcoux

Data Literacy with Julie Marcoux (she/her)

Data Librarian and Coordinator of Data and GIS Services, Dalhousie University Libraries

Julie Marcoux enjoys helping students, faculty, and researchers navigate the confusing world of datasets and statistics in order to find the data they need for their projects. She creates fun instructional material that touch on several elements of data literacy for use in data workshops, and she occasionally uses a bit of programming skills on projects such as creating an Excel file (with a menu with buttons that work!) for use in teaching advanced Excel functions.
