Elaborating on Threshold Concepts
Rountree, Janet; Robins, Anthony; Rountree, Nathan
Computer Science Education, v23 n3 p265-289 2013
We propose an expanded definition of Threshold Concepts (TCs) that requires the successful acquisition and internalisation not only of knowledge, but also its practical elaboration in the domains of applied strategies and mental models. This richer definition allows us to clarify the relationship between TCs and Fundamental Ideas, and to account for both the important and the problematic characteristics of TCs in terms of the Knowledge/Strategies/Mental Models Framework defined in previous work.
