Journal Club in Second Life: 26 February: Threshold Concepts Approach to the Standards Revision

Join us in the virtual world Second Life for a one-hour discussion of an open-access article. Led by me (Sheila Webber, University of Sheffield iSchool, Sheila Yoshikawa in Second Life) we will be discussing:
Hofer A, Brunetti K, Townsend L. (2013) A Threshold Concepts Approach to the Standards Revision. Communications in information literacy. 7(2), 108-113. http://edin.ac/1hhaaVi
The new draft ACRL standards have just been published, so it is timely to discuss this article which puts forward the rationale behind taking this approach in the new standards. As well as the article by Meyer and Land that is cited in this paper, if you are keen, you could also look at some other articles on threshold concepts e.g.
Cousin, G. (2006) An introduction to threshold concepts. Planet. (17), 4-5. http://journals.heacademy.ac.uk/doi/full/10.11120/plan.2006.00170004

When: 26 February 2014 12.00 noon SL time (which is 8.00pm UK time and the same
as US pacific time: see http://tinyurl.com/pdz36gr for times elsewhere)

Where: Infolit iSchool Journal Club room, in the virtual world Second Life, http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Infolit%20iSchool/106/209/31 You need a SL avatar and the Second Life browser installed on your computer.

Everyone is welcome to join the one-hour discussion.
