Transformative learning is a theory of adult education that specializes in the profound changes-or transformations-that may occur within the lives of adults. It’s not as concerned with incremental advances in learners’ knowledge as it’s with their mental frameworks for making meaning from life experiences. This book explores the role of creative expression on this transformational process. It provides a practical and accessible strategy to the usage of creative expression with adult learners. The book provides quite a lot of tools, methods and creative modalities which have been used to promote transformative learning, and discusses how adult educators themselves are transformative learners.
