Upcoming: Exploring Threshold Concepts, 28th October 12-1.30pm

Posted by on October 21st, 2009 · Announcements, Events, Exploring Threshold Concepts

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

Time: 12.00-1.30pm
