Fair-Minded Critical Thinking in Development Education: Reflections on pedagogies for transformation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article discusses research with development education practitioners in Britain and Spain, to explore their conceptions of pedagogical approaches to development education and how these relate to transformative learning theory. Development education is a process designed to generate informed action, which implies the objective of transformation through learning. By considering two key concepts of transformative learning theory; critical reflection and dialogue, the aim of this article is to analyse how practitioners understand and facilitate these through development education.
