Ray Land: Threshold concepts
Welcome back to another episode of the EBE Podcast. This month, our Director of Education, Stuart Kime, went to Durham University’s School of Education to chat to Ray Land, a pioneer in the field of threshold concepts, troublesome knowledge and liminality.
Ray is Professor of Higher Education at Durham University and Director of Durham’s Centre for Academic Practice. He previously held similar positions at the Universities of Strathclyde, Coventry and Edinburgh. He has been a higher education consultant for the OECD and the European Commission and has recently been involved in two European Commission higher education projects in Europe and Latin America. He has published widely in the field of educational research, including works on academic development, learning technology and quality enhancement – as well as on threshold concepts, of course. In short, he has an incredible wealth of expertise!
Some of this interview was used in our Assessment Lead Programme, more details of which can be found here.
