New Output: Epistemic Cognition – A lens onto fake news

Interested in how psychology helps inform how we find, evaluate, and use evidence? I’ve got a new piece out at the British Psychological Society’s magazine site The Psychologist on ‘Epistemic cognition: a lens onto fake news‘. The piece is freely available and discusses some of the research into how people search for information, and evaluate – sometimes competing – claims. The piece ends with some implications for teaching and learning contexts – how we support our students to critically engage with the information they encounter.

Many thanks to the various people who read (edited/critiqued/despaired at) earlier versions of this!
