I have posted the below on Face Book Connectivismeducationlearning Group discussion
Refer to this wiki on transformative learning and this wiki, and here
How important is rational critical reflection in learning (transformative learning in particular)?
It involves perspective transformation – psychological, convictional & behavioural.
3 phases – critical reflection, reflective discourse, & action. I seem to find most useful learning have undergone such phases, whether in blogs & forums, or in learning networks, where “deep learning” are evidenced, with an emergence of new knowledge.
1. Is meaning constructed from knowledge under such learning?
2. What is the role of teacher/learner in transformative learning?
3. Is this model of transformative learning applicable to connectivist based learning (MOOC – PLENK2010)?
