Interrogating transformative processes in learning and education: an international dialogue - a new European Society for Research on the Education of Adults (ESREA) Network - What’s the point of transformative learning?
We live in times where education is easily reduced to preparation for labour markets, or is commodified as a product whose main value is one of exchange for other goods, such as consumption. Learning, especially discourses of lifelong learning can also be narrow and reductive of the human spirit and possibility: the neo-liberal subject is constructed as highly individualistic – omnipotent and omniscient – and notions of collective learning and wider social justice get lost. Ideas of transformative learning (and / or critical reflection etc.) are in part a reaction to such processes.
Our Conference is addressed to all researchers and adult educators from Europe and around the world that share emancipatory educational goals, and wish to interrogate transformative processes in learning and education, their meaning, problematics and facilitation.
The aim of the Conference is therefore:
Conference languages: English will normally be used at the plenaries but a number of group sessions can be held in French or German.
The conference is organised by the Hellenic Adult Education Association.
