Please tell us briefly about your interest in transformative learning
Research interests in Adult/Continuing Education and Vocational Education and Training, particularly in issues of social inclusion and life-long, life-wide and life-deep learning. Various R&D projects in the fields of adult literacy and basic education/skills for life and work, access and capacity building for formally low-qualified adults, and participatory approaches in adult learning/education and research. Transformative Learning in theory and practice overlaps with the idea and concept of "Bildung". In my understanding, TL puts emphasis on individual and collective and societal change through adult education and learning. This strikes me in my currenct participatory research project in adult literacy education: What kind of impact can participatory research as trigger for transformative learning have on all learners/researchers (in our case: adult literacy learners, adult education professionals/providers and university-based adult education researchers)?
