This article builds on the research‐based model of the “journey of transformation” to further analyze its theoretical foundation and details. This model provides a framework for understanding how educators, as adult learners themselves, may experience perspective transformations in their perspective and practice of teaching and learning. Using the model as a focus for professional development creates opportunities for emancipatory learning, bridges the literature and research of adult learning and professional development in educational technology, and offers an integrated model of transformational learning theory with unique dynamics. Implications include those for understanding educators, transformational theory, application to the professional development of educators, and future research.
