Are you interested in pedagogical strategies and techniques that transform students’ educational experiences and facilitate deep approaches to learning? This workshop will focus on pedagogies that provoke what Jack Mezirow (1990) termed disorienting dilemmas – acute experiences or indefinite circumstances that cause students to engage in self-examination, critically assess their assumptions, explore new options, and reintegrate what they have learned. Participants in this workshop will learn about and apply Mezirow’s phases of transformative learning to their own courses, then engage in a model “disorienting pedagogy” known as World Café.
