Threshold Concepts: Undergraduate Teaching, Postgraduate Training and Professional Development: A short introduction and bibliography  http://www.ee.ucl.ac.uk/~mflanaga/thresholds.html  

Features of a Threshold Concept

  • Transformative: Once understood, a threshold concept changes the way in which the student views the discipline.
  • Troublesome: Threshold concepts are likely to be troublesome for the student. Perkins has suggested that knowledge can be troublesome e.g. when it is counter-intuitive, alien or seemingly incoherent.
  • Irreversible: Given their transformative potential, threshold concepts are also likely to be irreversible, i.e. they are difficult to unlearn.
  • Integrative: Threshold concepts, once learned, are likely to bring together different aspects of the subject that previously did not appear, to the student, to be related.
  • Bounded: A threshold concept will probably delineate a particular conceptual space, serving a specific and limited purpose.
  • Discursive:  the crossing of a threshold will incorporate an enhanced and extended use of language.
  • Liminality:  the crossing of the pedagogic threshold is like a ‘rite of passage’ (drawing on the ethnographical studies of Gennep and Turner in which a transitional or liminal space has to be traversed; “in short, there is no simple passage in learning from ‘easy’ to ‘difficult’; mastery of a threshold concept often involves messy journeys back, forth and across conceptual terrain. “
