Dirkx (2012) - TL Theory and Soul Work

One of my favorite TL theory pieces, because it takes us deep into what is really important - the soul work of transformative learning. John Dirkx rocks :-) If you can't find this book handy, email John at Michigan State University - I'm sure he'll send you a copy.

Transformative Learning Theory

Transformational education and transformative learning have become buzz words in higher education recently, often applied rather lightly to experiences and processes far beyond what is meant by the terms in traditions of scholarly literature, and often claimed with little or no attempt at assessment. This collection is meant to be a resource for anyone interested in learning more about the decades of research on Transformative Learning Theory sparked by the work of Jack Mezirow in the field of adult education in the early 1990s.
