Steps in need of teachers’ tranformative professonial learning

Judit Vidékiné Reményi

Abstract


The paper considers transformative learning within the context of teachers’ professional development as part of a formal teacher in-service training programmes. Hungarian teachers’ outdated teaching methods and more often than not old-fashioned classroom technologies and tools are not capable of providing quality education and training. Formal professional development programmes should shift from transmissive teaching to transformative teaching in order to improve student achievement by fundamentally changing teachers’ beliefs and attitudes to teaching. A model of a university-based teacher training programme aiming at teachers’ transformative learning is described.
