IOWA – Vyrsity announced the launch of the Journal of Transformative Learning and Leadership (JTLL), a twice-per-year, peer review academic journal, for the advancement of understanding and applying transformative learning to educational and leadership contexts in diverse disciplines. The JTLL will serve as a scholarly forum for the refinement and dissemination of research pertaining to interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary implications of transformative learning and its applications for leadership in diverse contexts.

The JTLL espouses the essential idea that learning that transforms is best understood through Biblical descriptions and processes. The JTLL is thus committed to refinement and dissemination of research and applications from the platform of the Biblical worldview in every discipline engaged. The JTLL also is rooted in the idea that those engaging in transformative learning ought also to be well equipped and active in transformative leadership – the application of transformative learning principles in the processes of assisting and guiding other individuals and communities in their own transformative growth.

The JTLL Editorial Board will prioritize research and article submissions that demonstrate alignment with the JTLL Mission and Core Values, and the inaugural Editorial Board includes:

Christopher Cone, ThD, PhD, PhD
Jamie Ervin, EdD
Allan Henderson, EdD
S. Michael Houdmann, Th.M, DMin (Studies)
Paul Miles, DMin
Mike Stallard, PhD
Christine Tan, PhD, PhD

The JTLL issued its first call for papers, noting that submissions to the JTLLL should be submitted publish-ready in the style (Chicago, Turabian, APA, MLA) typical for work in the discipline(s) that the article addresses. As a multidisciplinary journal, the JTLL evaluates style on a per-article basis. Submissions must be received by published call for papers due date to receive consideration for the upcoming issue.
