Transformative learning in adulthood by Susan Imel( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Mezirow's theory of transformative learning has evolved into a description of how learners learn by integrating new knowledge with their existing knowledge, beliefs, and experiences. Centrality of experience, critical reflection, and rational discourse are three common themes in Mezirow's theory, which is based on psychoanalytic theory and critical social theory. Numerous critical responses to Mezirow's theory of transformative learning have emerged over the years. Robert Boyd, for example, has developed a theory of transformative education based on analytical psychology. Whereas Mezirow's view of transformative learning emphasizes critical reflection and rational discourse, Boyd's emphasizes intuition and emotion. It has been suggested that no single mode of transformative learning exists and that differences in learning contexts, learners, and teachers all affect the experiences of transformative learning. Whether transformative learning is approached as a consciously rational process or through a more intuitive, imaginative process, practitioners seeking to foster a learning environment conducive to transformative learning must consider the following factors: role of the teacher, role of the learner, and role of the rational and affective. Although transformative learning may not always be a goal of adult education, all adult educators should at least strive to understand it. (Contains 11 references) (mn)

The Workforce Investment Act : some implications for adult and vocational education by Susan Imel( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1998 Workforce Investment Act (WIA) consolidates more than 70 programs and gives states the flexibility to partner with local governments to develop streamlined services providing universal access. Because adult education and postsecondary vocational education are required partners in the one-stop systems being established through Title I of the WIA, being represented among those perceived as providing leadership for development of state and local work force development systems is an important issue for adult and vocational educators alike. For both adult and postsecondary vocational educators, becoming key players in the work force development system will depend partially on their ability to collaborate with other agencies, particularly those involved as one-stop partners. Another issue for adult educators is how to combine literacy development with work force education. Because the individual training accounts mandated in the WIA will give adults much more choice in selecting where they will be trained, institutions known for their high-quality training will undoubtedly benefit from passage of the WIA, whereas institutions lacking such a reputation could suffer because they will no longer automatically receive students. (An annotated bibliography constituting 75% of this document contains 18 print resources and 2 Web sites related to the implementation of the WIA.) (MN)
