Dr. Kathleen P. King, professor of higher education of University of South Florida, Tampa FL, USA will present an overview of her mixed-methods research in transformative learning on October 6, 2011 at University of Hong Kong. Dr. King developed the first and only instrument for researching this popular adult learning theory in 1997. At this time, she knows that it has been used by over 50 researchers around the globe to guide studies reaching from adult learning, to higher education, corporate training, k-12 faculty development, counseling,
social work, teaching and learning, leadership, ESOL, literacy, women's studies, and more. She has published over 20 books and will speak about how her most recent volume on this topic describes an Evolving Model of Transformative Learning Research for beginning and mature scholars. The session will introduce not only the theory and research on this topic, but also describe and illustrate how to develop and sustain a vibrant research agenda. The seminar is hosted at UHK by CITE at the Faculty of Education, and funded in part by a International Travel Grant from the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL USA.
