Transformative Learning: Perspectives on Critical Engagement


Speaker(s): Dr. Richard Kiely

What is transformative learning? How do we develop the necessary critical lens to engage in transformative learning? How can Duke build a culture that supports disrupting norms that are problematic? Join the Transformative Learning Intellectual Community for a discussion with Dr. Richard Kiely, Senior Fellow, Office of Engagement Initiatives at Cornell University, to explore these topics. Grounded in adult and intercultural learning theories, Kiely has extensively researched learning processes and outcomes related to community-engaged experiences.
This talk is open to students, faculty and staff. Please register at the link to receive the Zoom invitation.
