Threshold concepts are concepts central to the mastery of a specific discipline. The project team created a generic model for using these concepts to explore and reflect on student misconceptions and the teaching of troublesome knowledge for use by teachers in biology. Student understanding of the concepts was tested and interventions designed to help improve understanding. A biology teaching package was created along with a generic teaching model and guidelines to assist learning. Project publications and resources are available at the project website.
