Teaching and Learning

Symposium on threshold concepts

The purpose of this symposium is to provide theoretical background and to share practical examples of teaching that enable learners to grasp TC and gain a deeper understanding of their discipline.

Akin to a portal or wormhole, Threshold Concepts represent a transformed way of understanding, interpreting, or viewing something without which the learner finds it difficult to progress within the curriculum. The Symposium will feature presentations from members of the Steering Committee of the International Threshold Concepts Conference which will take place in Dublin, 27-29 June 2012. The 2012 Conference is an international event and we expect significant participation from Australia, North America, Europe and beyond and wish to support a substantial input from an Irish cohort.
