Journal: Transformative Learning

Posted on August 27, 2018

Vol 29, No 3: Transformative Learning

One of the primary functions of higher education is to prepare students to become educated and engaged citizens so they may contribute to the intellectual, cultural, economic, and social advancement of their communities. Transformative learning has a growing place in higher education and is helping students to learn.

Issue 29.3 ‘Transformative Learning’ highlights the theory of transformative learning and ways in which it is institutionalized and operationalized across the CUMU membership. Included are articles that focus on how institutions are helping students to transform from adolescents to professionals in a field, or to re-design their lives through formal education.

I would like to thank Ed Cunliff, PhD, professor of Adult and Higher Education, and Jeff King, EdD, Executive Director, Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching & Learning, of the University of Central Oklahoma for serving as guest editors. Their scholarship and work guided the development and execution of this issue.

Best Regards,
