Description

Cardiff Centre for Medical Education (C4ME) 2018 Seminar Series

Professor Hilary Neve: ‘Aha’ moments and troublesome learning

Threshold concepts are transformative, integrative, irreversible and key to achieving mastery of a subject. Achieving mastery takes time and often involves struggle. Understanding where threshold concepts feature in a curriculum can help teachers to recognise where learning is troublesome and to support learners more effectively. Widely embraced across multiple disciplines, threshold concepts are only recently being studied in medical education

Hilary will discuss threshold concepts and their relevance to teachers, learners and curriculum developers. She will share findings from her audio-diary studies researching threshold concepts in professionalism, Problem Based Learning and Social Engagement – and discuss the implications of these findings for all of us involved in medical undergraduate education.

Hilary Neve is Professor of Medical Education at Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry where she directs the Professionalism, Small Group and Social Engagement programmes. She is also a National Teaching Fellow and an inner city GP. https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/staff/hilary-neve
