Perspective as a Threshold Concept in Business Communication
Getchell, Kristen M.; Lentz, Paula J.
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v14 n1 Article 15 2020
In this article, the authors present the notion of perspective as a threshold concept in business communication. Using an SoTL framework, the researchers explore the effect of teaching threshold concepts in a summary writing assignment in a foundational business communication class. Working with a close reading methodology, the authors examine the context of perspective as a threshold concept by analyzing students' summary samples for gender bias and explore how close reading can support further research into threshold concepts in business communication.
