Product Description


"In "Transformative Learning Through Engagement," Jane Fried and Associates provide convincing evidence that transformative learning is a crucial but undervalued aspect of university and college education. The book focuses on the role of student affairs professionals (also referred to as student services in Canada) in supporting transformative learning within a U.S. context, but it offers valuable insights about learning that are of importance to anyone involved in higher education. In drawing upon recent scholarship about the science of learning and behavioural change, this book underlines the value of creating integrated learning environments that educate the head, heart, and hands of students, thus better enabling them to engage with and adapt to a rapidly changing world.Fried and Associates present a strong case outlining how educational institutions urgently need to change in order to enable students to develop the knowledge and tools needed to become actively engaged citizens within a changing global context. Society is increasingly diverse and undergoing rapid social, cultural, economic, and environmental changes. New and complex issues that cross disciplinary boundaries require more integrated and collaborative approaches to problem solving. To that end, Fried asserts that universities and colleges need to break down structural and functional barriers in order to better support students in achieving transformative and integrated learning. This book will enable student affairs professionals and others involved in higher education to understand their roles in adapting to new educational realities."
