Threshold Concepts on the Edge
Julie A. Timmermans and Ray Land
A primary purpose for threshold concept research is to support curriculum design. This chapter reports on the redesign of an advanced search methods course based on research into threshold concepts for search expertise. Three types of learning activities – problem solving exercises, student presentations, and online discussions – are described and then analysed for attributes of threshold learning experiences. Because search methods and the novice-expert learning space are relevant across academic disciplines, the learning activities and theoretical perspectives presented may be adapted for other fields of study.
