Threshold concepts are discipline-specific concepts that govern ways of knowing, thinking and perceiving. ‘A threshold concept can be considered as akin to a portal, opening up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something’ (Meyer & Land, 2006).

Distinct from key concepts, threshold concepts are often tacit and difficult to distinguish from core content, involving uncomfortable cognitive and emotional repositioning for students. This workshop is hands-on; together we will unpack these transformative understandings.
