Item Description...
Overview
This volume continues the landmark work begun by Jack Mezirow over twenty years ago--revealing the impact of transformative learning on the theory and practice of adult education. Top scholars and practitioners review the core principles of transformation theory, analyze the process of transformative learning, describe different types of learning and learners, suggest key conditions for socially responsible learning, explore group and organizational learning, and present revelations from the latest research. They also share real-world examples drawn from their own experiences and assess the evolution of transformative learning in practice and philosophy. Learning as Transformation presents an intimate portrait of a powerful learning concept and invites educators, researchers, and scholars to consider the implications of transformative learning in their own professional work.

Publishers Description
"Provocative and illuminating, this book is a must read for adult educators seeking to understand and facilitate transformational learning. It showcases a stellar group of authors who not only engage each other and the reader in constructive discourse, but who also model the heart of the transformational learning process."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
understanding transformation  Apr 29, 2001
Jack Mezirow et al have provided an excellent resource book for helping us to change attitudes and tackle difficult situations.

As a LearningSupport Tutor in further education (16 years and over) the reviewer is often in contact with students who have challenging behaviour and finds herself in situations that require a shift in perspective, 'epistomology' and 'frame referencing'. This book provides the forum for doing the essential work. But it is not for the faint-hearted reader, neither is it light reading; this book is for thinkers: it's meanings are not always instantly accessible.

That said, for those who are serious about their profession, searching always for ways to improve their teaching, evaluation and reflection, this is the book to go for. Those readers who experience difficulty in accessing the academic language may benefit from discussions in the staff room and it is certainly a book that deserves studying on teacher-training courses.

Although the book is written with the adult learner in mind, teachers of younger teenagers may well find a lot of useful information here.

There is much food for thought in 'Learning as Transformation' and it is a book that can be read and digested like a series of good meals. This reviewer is doing just that and enjoying the experience.
