Roger Taylor (Ph.D. 2004, University of Pittsburgh, LRDC) is an Assistant Professor at SUNY Oswego. His research interests are focused on the theoretical and applied aspects of knowledge acquisition and conceptual change. In particular, he is interested in how the features of an explanation such as its epistemology (e.g. causal relationships, coherence, parsimony, etc.) and discourse structure (e.g. argument structure, elaboration complexity, linearity, etc.) interact with learner characteristics (e.g. interest and motivation, metacognitive strategies, learning goals, etc.) and contribute to learning.
