Threshold Concepts Presentation at DiscThink Workshop

Click here for Threshold Concepts presentationWe have just uploaded some slides and a handout from the Threshold Concepts, which was part of last week’s Disciplinary Thinking workshop at University of Bath on the 02/02/2012.

The slides offered a ‘taster’ of a longer presentation on Threshold Concepts that we are developing as an OER for the project.

  1. Thanks for your comment Tony. Your article sounds interesting and highly relevant to this work, and I think we’ll all be keen to read it.

    It would be good to stay in touch as the project unfolds.

  2. This is a very interesting area of development, particularly to me as I recently co-authored an article exploring the different approaches of academic disciplines to Open Educational Resources (OER).

    Our article explored the relationship between academic disciplines’ representation in the OU’s OpenLearn site with the OU’s fee-paying curriculum. We found that while subjects such as Science and Technology enjoyed an increased share of the OER curriculum, Education, Health & Social Care are under-represented. Your work on thresholds should add a useful perspective to this phenomenon. If you’re interested, you can download the full article from http://oro.open.ac.uk/31071.
    Best wishes, Tony.
