This essay is a reflection on the effectiveness of the idea of threshold concepts in engaging teaching staff in developing their scholarly teaching and scholarship of learning and teaching. I situate threshold concepts within a framework for critical reflection, describe how I have used this idea and some of the outcomes I have observed, and finish with my reflections about why threshold concepts are such an effective trigger to engage academics in SoTL.
