2020 PEAKS Interdisciplinary Conference
Thresholds and Threshold Concepts
Saturday, February 29, 2019
Call for Papers:
In a physical sense, a threshold is the bottom of a doorway that must be crossed to enter into a room. Kathleen Blake Yancey views threshold concepts as the “articulation of shared beliefs” that leads to the “modification, extension, and boundary marking” of spaces in social, professional, academic and other communities. Threshold concepts are entry points of knowledge that impact ideas and participants in discourse communities.
