Transformative Teaching & Learning in Higher Education

Facilitated by:
Dr. Alessandra Romano

This seminar will explain how the theory of transformative learning developed by J. Mezirow can inform teaching in Higher Education. Transformative learning allows students and educators to develop genuine relationships in which the educator can make a difference in the students’ lives and feels a difference in his or her own life as well.
