Join us on October 19th for "Sites of Epistemic Cognition", a CRLI seminar with Dr Simon Knight, Research Fellow in Writing Analytics at the University of Technology Sydney.
Simon's PhD research investigated epistemic cognition – cognition regarding the source, justification, complexity, and stability of knowledge – in collaborative information tasks. Students worked on separate computers making use of a tool (Coagmento) that facilitated their activity, providing a chat and collaborative text editor, and tracked their activity.
In this talk, I’ll discuss developing work on conceptualising the design of that research in terms of ‘sites of epistemic cognition’: situations; activities; products; and actors. In a parallel line of work, I have been re-conceiving ‘epistemic cognition’ in light of recent moves in the philosophical literature on ‘social epistemology’. The talk will introduce this novel account, illustrating its use as a lens onto epistemic dialogue.Event details
