DESCRIPTION: 

Over the past decade, the “threshold concept” has emerged as a valuable tool for educators seeking to improve teaching and learning in higher education. The term refers to the core ideas and “ways of thinking and practicing” that are characteristic of a discipline but that students often find difficult to grasp. This program explores ways that librarians can use the threshold concept model to make information literacy instruction more relevant, meaningful, and exciting to students.
