TCs in Health day…

The summer is passing at top speed, and it seems no time since the Threshold Concepts conference in at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. We had a productive and enjoyable day, with some colleagues who are veteran Threshold Concepts conference goers and others at their first conference. For most of the morning we linked up with colleagues in Glasgow, Coventry and Plymouth in the UK. The day generated lively discussion and lots of ideas for how to take the group forward in the future. The first step is setting up a Slack community for discussion and sharing. All our existing contacts will be added to this automatically, but if you’d like to join this group, just get in touch…
