Imposter Phenomenon Study

Robert Danielson’s research focuses on three broad topics:
  1. Conceptual Change – how learners can overcome misconceptions about science- and health-related topics
  2. Epistemic Cognition – how learners think about the nature of knowledge and use evidence found online and in text books to support their claims for knowledge
  3. Text-Graphic Processing – how graphics may facilitate better understanding of complex science topics when combined with texts (online or in print)
