Expert Statement

My research concerns developing the concept of online critical thinking. COVID-19 poses informational challenges: how to tackle the misinformation and disinformation waves online, or how to reconsider scientific literacy online. As we spend our lives online, we seek information to give us hope, and unfortunately, we seek for it in medical journals and in pre-prints, while we are not able to assess their scientific validity. Hence the need for more critical engagement with the online information, and also for a form of epistemic humility, for knowing our limits of understanding.
