Comparison between Transformative and Informative learning methods

Fostering a Climate Conducive to Transformative Learning. January 17, 2012 By: Joyce Henderson, EdD in Online Education It’s thrilling when I, as an educator, witness a student’s transformation from a limiting perspective to one that is broader, more inclusive, and most times empowering and inspiring.

I can see that the change in their ways of thinking opens their mind to new possibilities about their lives and their worlds.

Transformational education recognizes the importance of building trusting relationships with partners (Ayers, 2006; Covey, 1989), bringing scholarship that draws upon both university and local knowledge and expertise to public issues (Peters, Jordan, Adamek, & Alter, 2005), and building the capacity of individuals to engage in problem solving or taking actions with the "creative implementation of a purpose" (Mezirow, 1991). Transformational education exemplifies the Kellogg Commission's (1999) notion of the engaged university--publicly supported universities partnering with individuals and communities in a participatory process.

The series was later compiled and published as an article, Techniques for Evaluating Training Programs, in a book Kirkpatrick edited, Evaluating Training Programs (1975). However it was not until his 1994 book was published, Evaluating Training Programs, that the four levels became popular. Instructional Systems Development Opportunities at ASTD 2012.

The underlying concept within the constructivism learning theory is the role which experiences-or connections with the adjoining atmosphere-play in student education. The constructivism learning theory argues that people produce knowledge and form meaning based upon their experiences. Two of the key concepts within the constructivism learning theory which create the construction of an individual's new knowledge are accommodation and assimilation. Assimilating causes an individual to incorporate new experiences into the old experiences. Constructivist Learning Design Paper.

Teachers and teacher educators make different meanings of constructivist learning theory.

Constructivist Learning Design Paper

At a recent retreat with facilitators of learning communities for teachers who were studying in a Masters of Education program, we were talking about our common reading of The Case for Constructivist Classrooms (Brooks & Brooks, 1993). We asked the ten facilitators to answer this question, "What is constructivism? " The results were interesting because all of their definitions were quite different and reflected their own understanding of the term and the text. This was a clear demonstration that what we read does not produce a single meaning but that understanding is constructed by the readers who bring prior knowledge and experience to the text and make their own meaning as they interact with the author's words.
