Published: November 2018

Pages: 120

Size: 6 1/8 x 9 1/4

Threshold concepts are the backbone of the revised 2014 ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. Learn how to apply this influential theory in the context of your information literacy instruction.

This book provides information literacy practitioners with a thorough exploration of how threshold concepts can be applied to information literacy, identifying the important elements and connections between each concept and relating theory to practical methods that can transform how librarians teach.

A model that emerged from the Enhancing Teaching-Learning Environments project in Great Britain, threshold concepts are those transformative core ideas and processes in a given discipline that define the ways of thinking and practicing shared by experts. Once a learner grasps a threshold concept, new pathways to understanding and learning are opened up. The authors of this book provide readers with both a substantial introduction to and a working knowledge of this emerging theory and then describe how it can be adapted for local information literacy instruction contexts.

Five threshold concepts are presented and covered in depth within the context of how they relate and connect to each other. The chapters offer an in-depth explanation of the threshold concepts model and identify how it relates to various disciplines (and our own discipline, information science) and to the understandings we want our students to acquire. This text will benefit readers in these primary audiences: academic librarians involved with information literacy efforts at their institutions, faculty teaching in higher education, upper-level college administrators involved in academic accreditation, and high school librarians working with college-bound students.

Features
