Presenter: Cynthia Carlton, University Information Architect
Is everyone speaking the same language around the table? It can feel silly to ask what something means; especially when that thing seems so simple and fundamental. “Everyone knows what this is!” you think to yourself. But do they? And is that meaning the same for everyone? In this session, we will discuss when and way you should consider defining terms, how to deal with competing contexts, the differences between a business glossary and a data dictionary and best practices you can take away and start using right away on your teams and projects.
The event is part of the Data Dialogues series—monthly presentations for the University community on data-oriented issues—presented by the Data Governance and Support Office, the Office of Institutional Research, and the University Libraries.
