This article explores the evolution of transformative learning as a theoretical framework for a pedagogy for change. It takes a critical perspective recognizing that the practice of fostering transformative learning is an elusive and an ever-shifting approach to teaching and much about it still remains unknown and poorly understood.

Along with identifying these components transformative learning as a teaching approach that requires intentional action, personal risk, a genuine concern for the learners’ betterment, and the ability to draw on a variety of methods and techniques that help create a classroom environment that supports personal growth and for others social change
