Transformative teaching is teaching so compelling that it leaves your students with no choice but to dig deeper and reconsider their previous conceptions. A transformative teacher does not simply tell their students the information and expect them to learn it, a transformative teacher must engage the students to the point where they themselves are invested in their own learning.
Transformative teaching is not limited to content knowledge, although transformative teachers are able to transfer content knowledge effectively to their students. In order for teaching to be transformative, it must prompt shifts in mindsets or dispositions. Transformative teaching should prompt students to reconsider what they previously believed to be true.
Above all this, what differentiates transformative teaching is the action of transformation that takes place within the teacher themselves.
