HOD-815 Transformative Learning

4 semester credits
Transformative learning describes how we engage with our learning directly, reframing our perspectives, habits of mind, and judgements. The aim of Transformative Learning is to cultivate more inclusive and adaptive meanings to guide our reflective practice and critical action in the world. In the words of Jack Mezirow, one of the founders of the field, such an approach helps to make us “more inclusive, discriminating, open, emotionally capable of change, and reflective.” Students explore research on the theory and practice of transformative learning, including constructive-developmental, cultural, cognitive-rational, spiritual, Jungian, ecological, and critical emancipatory approaches. Questions include: What is meant by transformation? How is it catalyzed? What are the ethical concerns? What are the relationships between individual and socio-cultural and systemic transformation? What are the educational dimensions and outcomes of Transformative Learning?
