Using the Discovering Model to Facilitate Transformational Learning and Career Development
Kroth, Michael; Boverie, Patricia
Journal of Adult Education, v38 n1 p43-47 2009
Transformative Learning Theory has become one of the leading adult learning theories today and yet students, practitioners, and faculty can find it difficult to use. This useful theory has been applied to a variety of settings, including helping to describe the process which occurs as life mission is related to self directed learning. In the book, "Transforming Work: The Five Keys to Achieving Trust, Commitment, and Passion in the Workplace," the authors proposed a Passion Transformation Model, intended to help leaders and individuals create passionate work and passionate work environments. A process they call Discovering is embedded in that model. It is grounded in Transformative Learning Theory and is intended to demonstrate how one's passion might be discerned. This article presents The Integrative Discovering Model and describes how it may be used for advising, teaching, career, or organizational development. (Contains 2 figures.)
