Reflection, Writing, and Transformative Learning for College Teachers

Koenraad Kuiper

Abstract


Transformative learning is facilitated by teachers who are student-centred and passionate about the subjects they teach. When teachers write about their teaching the results can be inspirational. This essay reports on a set of such writings. The writing of others can also serve to inspire teachers to do their own writing about their teaching.  Opportunities for this occur in the normal course of a professional life  and these opportunities should be siezed not just for their operational ends such as promotion but also for expressing deeply felt engagement with teaching.


Keywords
