Description

Reviews

Here is a compelling, relevant, and accessible presentation of the possibilities of transformative learning for the adult education classroom. King offers a model for the design and implementation of learning opportunities that may facilitate transformative learning. Presented through stories based on research, this book provides a vital understanding of transformative learning and its application to the classroom. Based on King's experience with adult educators in many settings, the potential of transformative learning is brought into the context of the educators' reality, the learners, and the classrooms. This book addresses the specific contexts of adult education practice in continuing higher education, English for speakers of other languages, adult basic education, workplace education, and faculty development.

"A series of very helpful appendices gather together several diagrams of the Transformative Learning Opportunities Model, materials for use in each of the five learning settings described in the text, and instructional strategies and resources. A list of references and an index round out the volume." -- Trenton Ferro, PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Vol. 15, 2006

"This publisher is to be commended for producing texts aimed at practitioners as much as academics, and this volume is certainly aimed at the practitioner audience. The tone of the book as a whole is very much that of a guidebook to supporting transformative learning and includes plenty of examples of the concepts King discusses." -- Ralf St. Clair, University of Glasgow, Journal of Adult Continuing Education, Spring 2007
