Transformative Learning – points to discuss

Having read the Transformative Learning briefing you may like to think about some of the following questions:

  • The word transformation – what images come to mind?
  • Transformational learning – what images come to mind?
  • What do the above terms mean for your subject discipline?
  • What do the above terms mean for your students?
  • Is TL universally positive or are there possible downsides that need to be considered?
  • What might the terms mean for staff?
  • Can you share any examples of transformational and/or transformative learning?
  • What experience do you have of transformation or transformational learning?
  • What are the opportunities for TL at SHU?
  • What are the barriers and constraints to TL at SHU and how can these be overcome?
  • What are the implications for adult education practice?

Thanks to Chris Cutforth from Sport for developing this question set.
