Transformative Learning. Symposium 17. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 17, Transformative Learning, of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) 2000 Conference Proceedings. "Leadership Development as Transformative Pedagogy" (Olga V. Kritskaya, John M. Dirkx) examines the nature of transformative instructional environments, focusing specifically on the dynamic interplay among the teachers' beliefs, learners' experiences, content, and instructional methods. Findings suggest five themes that characterize the instructional environments studied, in which participants construct, through myths, rituals, imagination, and creativity, a "metatext" that mediates the inner work of leadership development. "The Added Dimension: Using the Learning and Change Model as a Means for Understanding Professionals' Performance" (Brenda Edgerton Conley, Sharon J. Confessore) reports a study that describes the change and learning process as it relates to professional practice among a group of 24 school principals and identifies patterns of change and learning. "A Methodology for Narrative Inquiry: Examining the Role of Narrative in Framing for Action" (Nancy Lloyd Pfahl) presents a conceptual framework for interpreting the methodology and an innovative research model. The papers contain reference sections. (YLB)
