Threshold Concepts - one of '10 trends set to shake up education'

Professor Ray Land emailed the Threshold Concepts community following up on the conference held in July 2014. I can't believe that very soon another month and the 2016 conference in Nova Scotia will be 'next year', but there we go...

Prof. Land updated us on a prospective book, and when available I will post news of the book and the next conference here.

While I am sure Threshold Concepts are (very) applicable to Hodges' model and my research interests, I am not trying to contribute to the planned text. I'm busy enough with the third graduate study module. Reading, discussion, a 4k word draft essay, two peer student reviews...

Prof Land also highlighted the following, which he's happy for me to share with you [I've added the image]:

... We were pleased to see that Thresholds were identified as one of '10 trends set to shake up education' as reported in The Times Higher magazine last week.
