TfLN-Transforming Perspectives project. (2010). 20 The Tools - 07 Threshold Concepts - Threshold Concepts: Staff perspectives (Tutor Interviews). http://www.dspace.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/224811
Part of a toolkit used in the Transforming Perspectives project, looking at using 'threshold concepts' as a framework for identifying areas of conceptual difficulty in disciplinary curricula. This document gives an outline for interviewing staff to determine what they feel might be threshold concepts - are these the concepts about which students most often ask questions? Are these the concepts that students regularly score badly on in tests? Are they the concepts that you have to put most effort into teaching, or the ideas that frame your discipline?
