Draft: Table 3 What about this one - should it stay or...?

 Table 3 Features of Hodges' model related to Threshold Concepts [TCs]

This is, I think, a more obvious element of a paper on Hodges' model and threshold concepts than Table 2 which has now been removed from the draft. Despite the inclination to relate the main features of one to the other at 5449 words it looks like this table will also be dropped. I'm not working to a word limit for a given journal, but 5-6000 words including references seems a more disciplined figure at this stage.

While I've just explained a rationale for it, the purpose of table 3 does not seem very clear within the paper. At 90 words the table is hardly lengthy, but it is the main text and ideas it relates too. Without fooling myself, I'm sure the draft is now much improved continuing to sort the wheat from the chaff as it were. Now I've placed the emphasis on explaining the example 'Deprivation of Liberty'. There is an interloper in the table: can you spot it?

Yes, that's it - Compound TCs [CTCs]. In this I'm questioning whether there are hybrid conceptual structures in Hodges' model? I'm proposing that 'Deprivation of Liberty' (must) be considered as a compound TC, for reasons (care requirements actually) of integrated, person-centered and holistic care. I also intend to argue that these are legacy issues (based on a 40 year career - practitioner research?) in terms of quality of care and quality of teaching / learning which also call for measurement. In addition to CTCs, I also see Hodges' model as a means to precontextualisation.

So, Table 3 thanks for hanging out with me: you will be revisited at some point, but for now it looks like your rows and columns are numbered!

Once again if needed this invaluable introduction and bibliography on threshold concepts may help with the meaning of the threshold concepts features.
