Abstract

Knowledge is built upon personal experiences and the information to which we have access. My area of research is in communicating the language of business (accounting) to non-business learners.  I’ve found that both communication and motivation are primary factors in transformational learning.  To this end, research has shown that project-based education improves student skills, and transforms the traditional classroom for both teachers and students.  Combining project-based education with adult dialogue education provides a transformative method of education that encourages student-driven, collaborative project-based learning as well as opportunities for teachers to reflect upon their epistemology and pedagogy.
