Profile Information

Please tell us briefly about your interest in transformative learning
I place my teaching and learning within the transformative education paradigm. I appreciate Mezirow's theory on adult transformative education for creating a framework from which other thinkers such as Dirkx, Boyd, Myers, and Ruether have developed ideas. These authors connected Mezirow's rational, cognitive and analytical approach to a more intuitive, creative and holistic view of transformative learning. My view is that transformative learning is intuitive and emotional, which aligns with the work of Dirkx who describes emotions and feelings as a kind of language for helping people to learn about themselves, their relationships with others and how they make sense of reality.
