This chapter presents a proposed methodology for identifying threshold concepts within the context of professional development and online teaching. The chapter may be of particular interest to those responsible for designing professional development for online teachers in higher education contexts. Furthermore, scholars of the Threshold Concepts Framework may find the methodology outlined in this chapter to be useful when identifying threshold concepts in other disciplinary or professional contexts, especially for the purposes of curriculum design.
