About Threshold Concepts

Consider threshold concepts as portals that open up new, transformative modes of thinking.  The WRT 104 and 106 library instruction sessions are guided by three threshold concepts:

  • Research as inquiry
  • Searching as strategic exploration
  • Authority is constructed and contextual

Use the charts below to gain a better understanding of the questions and considerations that drive each of these threshold concepts.
