    1. Transformation for adults in an Internet-based learningenvironment—is it necessary to be self-directed?

      REDIRECT to this URL Tranformation for adults

      This study explores transformative learning theory (TLT) for adults in the Internet-base learning environment and questions the need for students to be self-directed. The study also includes the Constructivist Internet-based Learning Environment Scale (CILES). The Self-directed Learning Readiness Scale(SDLRS) as modified by Chang (2006) was used to meet the cultural needs of the participants. In conclusion, the results have a high reliability factor and add quantitative research to previous qualitative studies.<br> Further discussion is suggested regarding the technical and emancipatory learning interests on adult online learners.

    1. A technology-enhanced transformative learning environment in support of de-veloping reflective practitioners can be a situated learning environment just by dint of integrating it into clinical learning settings where students are developing the skilled know-how and practices of the profession. The tasks, discussions and other learning activities afforded by the technology learning system will be in support of the hands-on learning taking place in the health setting and should be incorporated into the clinical training to create the perception of a single learning environment. A situated learning environment will afford students the ability to practice and ap-ply knowledge and skilled know-how and also participate in social learning such as discussions, group activities and individualized work that will encourage the reflection that leads to transformative learning.

      The education for the professions and clinic education requires a unique perspective and approach, this chapter presents the critical elements of transformative learning environment design: context, critical discourse, and critical reflection, and the health science education need to have a context supportive of critical discourse and reflection for transformative learning by using a technology-enabled learning environment.

    1. A defining condition of being human is that we have to understand the mean-ing of our experience. For some, any uncritically assimilated explanation by anauthority figure will suffice. But in contemporary societies we must learn tomake our own interpretations rather than act on the purposes, beliefs, judg-ments, and feelings of others. Facilitating such understanding is the cardinal goalof adult education. Transformative learning develops autonomous thinking.

      This article explores transformitive learning theory and autonomous thinking. The author focuses on putting theory into practice with adults.
