Announcing new Tableau Data Literacy curriculum for higher education

We recognize that instructors need to provide accessible and engaging learning experiences to their students. The two course data literacy curriculum provides foundational knowledge to students so they can understand, explore, and effectively communicate with data.

Bring Data Literacy to the classroom

I want students to know you can teach yourself Tableau. I was an Economics major at Michigan State and while didn’t learn Tableau in the classroom, I also knew that what you learn in class and what’s valuable in a professional setting can be very different!

Bridging the data literacy gap

While it’s imperative that students learn data skills and become data literate, it’s not always clear where to begin or how to be successful. We sat down with a panel of data literacy leaders from universities and the greater Tableau Community to chat about helping people learn the “language of data” and its impact on the future of business.
