Transformative Learning Theory, A Theory In Progress? Thoughts From A Habermasian Perspective, Saskia Eschenbacher

Adult Education Research Conference

Mezirow borrows heavily from Habermas utilizing core concepts of his theory. However, this activity has serious shortcomings. This paper explores these shortcomings and contributes to the further development of the theory of transformative learning (TL). This paper focuses on three philosophical aspects of transformation theory. I (1) underline inaccuracies and misunderstandings of Habermas' ideas utilized by Mezirow. It will (2) identify theoretical shortcomings and problems in the work of Habermas transposed onto Mezirow's theory of transformative learning. And (3) finally I argue for a way forward for the theory of transformative learning to become a theory in progress.


Theorizing Embodied, Collective And Societal Learning Through Prefigurative Social Movements, Margaret L. Cain, Jennifer Kushner, Cassidy Thomas Jan 2021

Theorizing Embodied, Collective And Societal Learning Through Prefigurative Social Movements, Margaret L. Cain, Jennifer Kushner, Cassidy Thomas

Adult Education Research Conference

This paper theorizes adult learning as a multi-leveled, emergent process of interactions between individuals, groups, and societal systems. We theorize from the context of prefigurative social movements that are enacting values of direct democracy, solidarity economics, and equity. We analyze Occupy encampments as sites in which individuals, movement groups, and society learn as complex adaptive systems. The theorizing of these learning processes has implications for adult education theory, research, and practice.

Continuing And Community Education As Engaged Learning, Wendy M. Green, Catherine Hansman, Nancy M. Prattt, Marius Boboc

Adult Education Research Conference

CPE providers focus on understanding learning needs, designing and providing educational offerings, and evaluating programs. Cervero and Daly believe these decisions are made within the contested spaces of the social, professional, institutional, and educational systems; however, CPE continues to focus on the needs of the workplace and economic demands. We argue for a re-framing of how CPE is conceptualized and situated within the realm of adult learning and development specific to higher education institutions which engage in the endeavor, proposing the Community Transformation Model for Continuing and Extended Education to address neo-liberalism bias.

Disability Matters: Ideia, Section 504, And Ada: What Do These Acts Mean For African American Learners Who Experience Intellectual Disabilities? A Critical Literature Review, Marketa President, Elice E. Rogers, Jonathan E. Messemer

Adult Education Research Conference

Adult learners with an intellectual disability have legal protections to access post-secondary learning and vocational opportunities. As individuals strive to maximize potential in the disability space, do cultural barriers of racism disrupt the potential for African American adult learners with intellectual disabilities? One implicit assumption is that race and social status affect advocacy efforts for learners during K-12 experiences, and the adult learners’ ability to self-advocate.
