Conclusion: Considering Transformative Learning<br />Meizrow and Chapman’s Principles of Transformative Learning:<br />Adults exhibit two kinds of learning: instrumental (e.g., cause/effect)) and communicative (e.g., feelings)<br />Learning involves change to meaning structures (perspectives and schemes). <br />Change to meaning structures occurs through reflection about content, process or premises.<br />Learning can involve: refining/elaborating meaning schemes, learning new schemes, transforming schemes, or transforming perspectives. <br />
