      • Pedagogical context, initial data and aims.
    • e-Gothicist.
  • Key Themes:
    • TEL has an important role to play in facilitating effective peer feedback and student mentoring.

  • Project Background:
  • Research and teaching context – Gothic as a research and teaching strength within the English Department at Edge Hill University.
  • Approximately 250 students each year across levels 4, 5, 6 and 7 undertake taught modules with a Gothic/ supernatural flavour.
  • Pedagogical context:
  • Gothic identified as a literary form that invokes ‘threshold concepts’ that are ‘transformative’ (Wisker 2007).
  • As Hoeveler and Heller note in Teaching Gothic Fiction, more needs to be done to share good practice in the teaching of Gothic texts/modules.
