Training the trainers at the University in time of crisis: implications of Transformative Learning for adult learning, educational programs and curriculum

Abstract : This contribution presents a Masters program preparing for careers in adult education, especially vocational and professional training, in Rennes (Brittany - France). While the economic crisis has accentuated the injunction to answer to work difficulties with instrumental responses, the main pedagogical challenge rests on the answer that can offer this program, targeting skills that are not only based on instrumental knowledge but also on reflexive and transformative abilities. The example of two course units, offered during a same semester, illustrates how learners are led to examine, through their experience, their own meaning schemes to change their perspectives. For this, we focus on both self-directed learning and co-constructed learning, in a "dialogic perspective".
