Desert Island Thresholds
  • Plymouth Lecture Theatre, Portland Square Building

Save event

In this inaugural lecture, Hilary Neve, Professor in Medical Education, will discuss the theories of threshold concepts and troublesome knowledge and their relevance to medical education, clinical practice and to us all, as teachers, researchers and/or learners. 

She will also draw on her own career experiences and research findings to introduce and explore the eight troublesome and threshold concepts that, were she marooned on a desert island, she would most like to spend her time contemplating!

The lecture starts at 18:00 and is chaired by Professor Rob Sneyd, Dean of Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.

Refreshments will follow after the talk.
