On this episode, Katie is joined by Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, a cognitive scientist at the University of Bristol. He was an Australian Professorial Fellow from 2007 to 2012, and was awarded a Discovery Outstanding Researcher Award from the Australian Research Council in 2011. He received a Wolfson Research Fellowship from the Royal Society upon moving to the UK in 2013. He was appointed a Fellow of the Academy of Social Science in 2017. In 2016, he was appointed a fellow of the Center for Skeptical Inquiry for his commitment to science, rational inquiry and public education.

His most recent research interests examine the potential conflict between human cognition and the physics of the global climate, which has led him into research in climate science and climate modeling. He has published more than 150 scholarly articles, chapters, and books, including numerous papers on how people respond to corrections of misinformation and what variables determine people’s acceptance of scientific findings. He has also contributed around 50 opinion pieces to the global media on issues related to climate change "skepticism" and the coverage of science in the media. He is currently serving as Digital Content Editor for the Psychonomic Society and blogs routinely on cognitive research at www.psychonomic.org.

On this episode, Katie is joined by two guests:

Dr. Loraine McKay is a lecturer at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, where she teaches in preservice and post graduate teacher education programs. She is currently program advisor in the Bachelor of Education program. Her teaching areas include inclusive education and literacy intervention. Loraine’s research interests align strongly with her passion for teaching. She was a classroom teacher for over twenty years in the primary education sector before leaving teaching to complete her doctoral studies. The topic for her PhD focused on the sociocultural factors that influence preservice teachers’ beliefs and practice during the transition into the profession, an area of interest drawn from her role as a beginning teacher mentor and university tutor. Her current research centers on developing teacher-identity and teachers’ capacity to work with students with learning difficulties. Loraine is interested in exploring the use of arts-based practices to explore the affective dimension of teaching and engagement in learning.

Dr. Sue Monk is a lecturer in the School of Education and Professional Studies at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. Her PhD, in the areas of ethnomusicology and Latin-American studies, investigated the relationship between the artist and the state in Cuba, specifically the role of the music. She works with qualitative methodologies and draws on critical interculturalism and postcolonial frameworks. In transferring her research to the education field, she currently teaches in the field of sociology of education. Her current research investigates 'funds of knowledge' (Moll et al) amongst Latin American communities in her city, specifically amongst mothers and daughters. Her book The Politics of Differentiation in Education was published by Routledge in October 2016.

Segment 1: Early-career Researchers [00:00-16:27]
