From Wells to Wormholes: Engaging Threshold Concepts Through Inclusive Teaching and Learning.

Threshold concepts are conceptual gateways that lead to previously inaccessible ways of thinking. They are often troublesome obstacles for students, but once grasped, can have transformative and even irreversible impacts. So how can faculty engage students at the threshold and activate learning? How do we take students to a liminal moment where they address thorny topics and create knowledge? Join Linda Adler-Kassner, Professor and Associate Dean of Education at University of California, Santa Barbara, for a discussion on threshold concepts at the intersection of inclusive teaching, writing, and learning. Coffee and cookies will be served.
