Illeris, Knud – Journal of Transformative Education, 2014
Transformative learning has usually been defined as transformations of meaning perspectives, frames of reference, and habits of mind--as proposed initially by Jack Mezirow. However, several authors have found this definition too narrow and too cognitively oriented, and Mezirow has later emphasized that emotional and social conditions are also…

McKay-Jackson, Cassandra – Journal of Transformative Education, 2014

Social emotional learning (SEL) has been described as one of the missing links in academic education, but a restrictive approach to…

West, Linden – Journal of Transformative Education, 2014
In this article, I interrogate the changing forms that may be fundamental to transformative learning and how these are best chronicled and understood. Drawing on auto/biographical narrative research, I challenge the continuing primacy of a kind of overly disembodied, decontextualized cognition as the basis of transformation. Notions of epistemic…

Mackinlay, Elizabeth; Barney, Katelyn – Journal of Transformative Education, 2014
For tertiary educators in Indigenous Australian Studies, decolonising discourse in education has held much promise to make space for the diversity of Indigenous Australian peoples to be included, accessed, understood, discussed, and engaged with in meaningful ways.

Spear, Stephen B. – Journal of Transformative Education, 2014
Fundamental to the process of Jungian individuation is the integration of ego consciousness and unconsciousness. For this to occur, the ego must be willing to consciously cooperate with the unconscious, acknowledging and nonjudgmentally accepting the imaginal communications that flow from it. The ego's decision to cooperate with the unconscious is…
