Hiroshima Shudo University
Hello, my main interests as a teacher are learner development and pragmatics, and I hope my main approaches as a teacher include innovation and reflection. At the same time, person-centred teaching is the goal for my classes - it should be about the people in the classroom, their lives and interests, and especially about their interaction.
In this forum, a range of interactive presentations will critically explore the theme of transformative learning communities (TLCs), based on theories of transformative learning where learners reach fundamental shifts in their worldviews and actions through reflection. Presenters will focus on distinct groups of learners (high school students, university students, teachers, teacher trainees, and practitioner-researchers), with forum participants invited to discuss and later share their reflections about TLCs in Learning Learning, the Learner Development SIG's newsletter.
