Choosing Our Own Adventure: A Collaborative Threshold Concept Instruction Workshop
LOEX (2015)
  • Gayle Schaub
  • Hazel McClure, Grand Valley State University
In this session, editors/authors of recently-published book of threshold concept based lesson plans will discuss creating plans for instruction that use information literacy threshold concepts as their foundations. Presenters will introduce the book, then facilitate the process of deciding as a group which threshold concept to work with for the session. Participants see examples of lesson plans from the book, learn about the format and content of the lesson plans, and discuss how the lessons relate to the threshold concept and frame. The program also includes a mini-workshop where participants work in groups to draft an idea for an activity that teaches the chosen threshold concept. Participants will receive a template of a lesson plan so that after the conference they can flesh the lesson plans out in full.
