I am interested in the role, nature, and extent of learning that takes place across universities in courses that are focused on sustainability and sustainable development. My research aims to explore meanings and experiences of 'transformative learning' for students and educators in such courses, and to develop recommendations for the fostering of transformational experiences in sustainability curricula.
