A presentation by Ingrid Geier, PhD from Salzburg University of Teacher Education, co-sponsored by the College of Education and College of Social Sciences.

The importance of transformative learning (TL) takes on a new significance. Change processes require a common view of education, society, and the environment to bring about a sustainable socio-ecological transformation. TL can contribute to educational policy at the university level. But which socio-ecological transformation processes can be implemented in educational contexts to initiate change? This presentation shows initial considerations to create learning occasions for students to think in alternatives, to develop problem-solving strategies and identify individual and collective scope for action.
