Working Group

The following people have volunteered to co-create a framework to support the future of transformative learning and the success of future conferences. This group formed during the fall 2012 International Transformative Learning Conference. Members agreed to take these leadership roles based on their groundedness in and contributions to the field of transformative learning, participation in several past TL conferences and representation of a range of TL perspectives and practice settings. Additional opportunities for participation will be available via dedicated "Consulting Groups" and the "Conference Planning Group" that will form in the coming months.
