Abstract

The article deals with the theories of transformational learning, its formation and development, roles of participants in transformative programs, natural environments and instructional activities as they relate to transformational learning, and challenges arising for the educator teaching in transformational learning environments. This theory of J. Mezirow is considered as unique to adults and identifies the factors producing transformational learning in adult students. Principal differences between adult and child learners are the use of prior knowledge and life experiences, conscious decisions regarding the self-directed learning, learner’s conscious responsibility for new learning for various conscious self-directed reasons. So, adult educators need to adapt their methodologies and roles to facilitate adult learners’ transformational learning.
