I found the Journal of Transformative Education and Jack Mezirow's theory of transformational learning fascinating. I have learned a great deal about collaboration from exploring the writings of Mezirow (Dirkx & Mezirow, 2006; Mezirow, 2003, 2004) on critical reflection and transformational learning in the Journal of Transformative Education. Here are a few of my favorites:
