This will be the first seminar in the ‘Exploring Threshold Concepts Series’.
The aims of these sessions are twofold –
- firstly to showcase research that is being done into the area of threshold concepts at UNSW
- secondly, to provide the opportunity for participates to discuss their own research – or potential research – into this area with the view of supporting the development of abstracts for the International Thresholds Symposium 2010 hosted by UNSW
The session will be facilitated by Jan McLean, Learning & Teaching at UNSW.
In this first session Noel Whitaker and Chris Hughes will discuss the ALTC funded project they are involved in ‘Using Threshold Concepts to Generate a New Understanding of Teaching and Learning Biology’ which is a collaboration between UNSW, USyd and UWS. For further information see the project website at http://bugs.bio.usyd.edu.au/thresholds_in_biology/Index.html.
Location: Climate Change Research Centre, Level 4 Mathews Building
Light lunch will be provided by L&T@UNSW with support from the ALTC.
