Integration of Wikidata 4OpenGLAM into data and information science curricula
10-31, 13:30–13:55 (UTC), Room 2

The presentation looks at the use of Wikidata, Open Refine and related tools in the Data Science major of the Information Science bachelor's programme at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
It gives insight into the tasks and contents of the modules, as well as the use of data from projects such as Coding da Vinci or NFDI4Culture. Examples of students' results from the previous semester and their further use in other contexts are introduced.
Furthermore, it will be discussed to what extent the practical involvement of students in OpenGLAM communities influences motivation and learning success.
