Development of scientific thinking through its components can be challenging. Therefore, pedagogical solutions that help teachers to understand the students’ challenges in learning and to overcome these difficulties are helpful. Research over the past 15 years has highlighted the theory of threshold concepts, that is, the concepts that are key to deep understanding in specific disciplines. Much of the work on the threshold concepts framework was originally related to discipline-specific learning...

Abstract One of the principal roles of a PhD examiner is to judge ‘both the potential of the researcher and the quality of the research’ ( Holbrook, Bourke, Fairbairn, & Lovat, 2014 , p. 986). While examiners may be guided by criteria supplied by universities, the descriptors they are provided with can often be open to interpretation. Interpreting an examiner's report can present a challenge to students and their supervisors, exacerbated by the often ambiguous use of language in the reports. Thi...
