Threshold Concepts Research

Helen King is leading a small-scale, pilot research project to investigate troublesome concepts in the Geosciences. The data has been collected via the Universities of Plymouth (UK), Colorado (USA) and Calgary Canada and will be analysed over the summer 2009 with a view to submitting for publication before Christmas.

I'm very keen on taking this research further and involving more institutions in more countries. Funding is obviously one of the key issues so if anyone knows of any appropriate sources I might investigate do let me know!
