"very strongly recommended" (Library Bookwatch, June 2006)Praise for Patricia Cranton
"Perceptive, provocative, and lucid, Patricia Cranton’s clear and careful analysis and her down-to-earth examples of transformative learning concepts move my work significantly closer to the practitioner. Highly recommended!"
—Jack Mezirow, professor emeritus of adult education, Teachers College, Columbia University
"Patricia Cranton shows us how teachers and facilitators can and must be understood as adults engaged in transformative learning. By highlighting case studies of how individual educators learn about their practice, she helps us rethink the way professional development is conceived and conducted."
—Stephen Brookfield, distinguished professor, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota
"Patricia Cranton has given us a book that is insightful and inclusive, practical as well as analytical. She provides a skillful integration of theory and practice about the complex issue of professional development for adult educators without denying that complexity or losing contextual concerns."
