The Dynamic Learning Circle

In 1991–93 a group of educators devised the Framework for Transformation with its dynamic learning cycle resting within the parameters of twelve principles. Piloted, monitored and then first published in 1995, the Framework has been used successfully in thousands of organisations.

Resting within the twelve principles lies the Dynamic Learning Cycle – the process on which Values and Visions is based.

With values at its core, the process moves from experience to reflection to purpose and action and back again in a repeating cycle.

What is Values and Visions?

How does Values and
Visions work?

Where can Values and
Visions help you?


Within each section – experience, reflection, purpose and action – are activities dealing with the different elements of that stage. It is important that you work through the cycle but you can pick and choose the activities in each section depending on the topic or curriculum area you are focusing on.

In this way you are using holistic ways of learning in order to reach some very specific outcomes: global sustainability, inner strength and a strong sense of community.
