Higher Education as Transformation

"For transformative education to take place there really needs to be a much more experiential form of learning, for people to actually engage in processes of change, to try things out from themselves, to address real world problems, and to realize that not all solutions can be found easily. And it’s when you start to ask the hard questions and grapple with some intractable problems that you begin, perhaps, to open up opportunities to learn in a different way."

This quote comes from a report by edited by Paul Taylor for the Global University Network for Innovation.

Although the focus of this is not particularly about technology in education, it still emphasizes conversation, dialogue and participation in talking about how education can be transformative. We should continue to think about how all educational experiences can be engaging.
