In today's world of generic instructional methods and standards, we have observed a need for deeper kinds of learning engagement – the kind that leaves a lasting impression on the learner and has a demonstrable impact on practices. In this paper we offer our initial model for achieving transformative learning through deep engagement. The model draws on theories of cognition, aesthetics, and ritual and symbolic support for identity change.
