Reciprocity as a Threshold Concept for Faculty Who Are Learning to Teach with Service-Learning
Harrison, Barbara; Clayton, Patti H.
Journal of Faculty Development, v26 n3 p29-33 Sep 2012
Requiring and fostering shifts in perspective, practice, and identity, the counter-normative pedagogy of service-learning can be challenging for faculty to learn. Meyer and Land's (2003, 2005) work on threshold concepts may enhance understanding of the troublesome yet transformative nature of learning to collaborate reciprocally with students and community members. While the authors' focus here is service-learning, this discussion also applies to faculty learning around community-campus engagement more generally.
