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

Threshold Concepts: Undergraduate Teaching, Postgraduate Training and Professional Developmen A short introduction and bibliography | Information Literacy: Instruction & Assessment | Scoop.it

Over the past decade this concept has been embraced by many disciplines outside economics; indeed the above quote is from Glynis Cousin’s excellent short introduction to the concept written for earth scientists. The threshold concept has been seen as a valuable tool, not only in facilitating students’ understanding of their subject, but in aiding the rational development of curricula in rapidly expanding arenas where there is a strong tendency to overload the curriculum (Cousin, [7, 9]). This web page will describe, briefly, the characteristics of a threshold concept and list selected references to the work of those examining its value in a broad range of disciplines.

‘There could be trouble ahead’. Threshold Concepts, Troublesome Knowledge and Information Literacy – a current debate.

Ray Land

The American Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) has recently produced a Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.

Toolkit: Homepage | CARLI

While the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education was filed by the ACRL Board in February, 2015, and was a major topic of discussion at ACRL 2015 in Portland, many academic librarians still question how to use the new Framework in library instruction. Since 2013, the CARLI Instruction Showcase has offered academic librarians from Illinois the opportunity to share tips, tricks, and techniques they have used in library instruction. This Toolkit maps those instructional activities taught at the CARLI Instruction Showcase to the Framework, with the hopes that instruction librarians can use these presentations as resources for creating and/or re-imagining their own library instruction to accord with the Frames.
