Threshold Concepts: Undergraduate Teaching, Postgraduate Training and Professional Development A short introduction and bibliography

A short introduction and bibliography

The Meyer and Land Threshold Concept

           The idea of threshold concepts emerged from a UK national research project into the possible characteristics of strong teaching and learning environments in the disciplines for undergraduate education (Enhancing Teaching-Learning Environments in Undergraduate Courses). In pursuing this research in the field of economics, it became clear to Erik Meyer and Ray Land [1-8, 9-16], that certain concepts were held by economists to be central to the mastery of their subject. These concepts, Meyer and Land argued, could be described as ‘threshold’ ones because they have certain features in common.

As the calendar slipped across from 2011 to 2012 the discovery of threshold concepts is very timely and quite central to my own studies. Wish I'd been in time for the call for papers!


As one year ends it helps to have a gateway to new vistas and to make sure that my review of the literature is systematic.
