Transformative Learning

Transformative Teaching Banner

Throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, the Paul C. Reinert, S.J. Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning will offer a series of events and online resources highlighting different aspects of transformative learning.

All learning involves change. Transformative learning occurs when learners themselves are changed by their learning experiences. In the classroom, this means students learn to master the content and skills needed for success in a discipline, and they also experience this learning as a shift in perspectives, in frames of reference - about themselves, their beliefs, and their actions.

Guiding Questions

During the year, we will explore possible answers to four key questions:

  1. What is transformative learning?
  2. What conditions create the potential for transformative learning?
  3. What instructional methods and course designs promote transformative learning?
  4. What kinds of technologies can support transformative learning?
