Threshold concepts: Professional development about online teaching
10 October 2012
Join us on October 10 for a CoCo Seminar by Dr Maria Northcote and Dr Kevin Gosselin titled "Threshold concepts: Professional development about online teaching".
Threshold concepts are defined as "core concepts that once understood, transform perception of a given subject" (Meyer & Land, 2003) and "troublesome knowledge" (Perkins, 2006) is knowledge that challenges the learner and can cause cognitive conflict as learners compare new ideas with their prior knowledge.
