WORKSHOP: Transforming Learning with Threshold Concepts

Time: 2/6/2015 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Location: Haggard Hall 222

What are the ideas that irreversibly changed the way you think about your discipline? Once you know them, you can make teaching decisions that transform student thinking. Threshold concepts involve identifying conceptual building blocks that potentially transform ways of thinking. Please join Carmen Werder and campus colleagues to explore disciplinary-based threshold concepts, hear case stories from a panel of faculty who have put this idea into practice, and have dedicated work time to identify threshold concepts in your courses. Light refreshments. RSVP appreciated via email:Justina.Brown@wwu.edu
Sponsors: CIIA, Writing Instruction Support and TLA
