AbstractOur ability to adapt to the relentless change of modern society and to transform how we see the world are essential to our survival in these complex times. However, we are rapidly losing that race as increasing complexity overtakes our ability to build our adaptive and transformative capacity. Transformative learning and systems literacy are essential components to turning that tide. This paper gives an overview of transformative learning theory and applies a systems and complexity framework to that process to create a foundation for transformative change. It covers the concepts of the disorienting dilemma, critical reflection, dialogue, and meaning making at the edge of chaos.
