What is Heutagogy?


Published on

A curated conversation of the book Self-Determined Learning edited by Stewart Hase & Chris Kenyon featuring 50 words on every chapter trying to answer the question "What is Heutagogy?" for World Heutagogy Day 26 September 2013

Published in: Education, Technology
  • Ute, I am Fred. Well there are two ways of looking at this. If you are asking is their heutagogic content, then I would say no. Heutagogy is a process of developing self-determined learning skills in learners. It would be more of a co-creation process (see slides on 'co-creating open scholarship') and involving changes in the role of the teacher (See the slides on Craft of e-Teaching). You can use participant design to develop content, look at the Ecology of Resources Toolkit http://www.ld-grid.org/resources/methods-and-methodologies/eor, but the process is about, perhaps, learners developed Personal Learning Networks and the 'teacher' evaluating them. You can use a tool like xtlearn.net to create this; http://xtlearn.net/Welcome I will blog on this on my heutagogy blog, or maybe on WikiQuals. Hope this helps - Fred

  • Hi Dennis. We've just attended the Learning Landscape conference in Cape Town and the term Heutology came up time and again... are you possibly looking at developing a course that will show-case how to develop learning materials in line with heutological principles?

  • Wow Denis, great comment, and insights into your own self-directed pathway, thanks! My Beatles chapter comes both from a free novel about learning (my own - you can have the Kindle if you want) 63/68 A Visceral History http://www.scribd.com/collections/2454050/63-68-A-Visceral-History AND a blog that came from it - Beatles YouTube Album http://jpgringo2.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/beatles-live-1957-1963/

  • I grew up in the suburbs of Liverpool and went to school with boys who had their own groups ... I never actually saw the Beatles but jumped for joy when the BBC programme Juke Box Jury gave 'Please Please me' a 'Hit'. I was revising for my finals at Loughborough University in Cybernetics and Ergonomics when Sgt Pepper came out ... it was so fantastic a real piece of inspirational music. But to see it a the result of Heutagogic learning is very insightful. When I spent 3 years conducting my own investigations into Creativity in the late 70's I was following my own self-directed pathway and boy was it great fun. Mine was a Personal curicula. My subsequent experimentations paved the way to a fantastic career. I used to call myself a Barn Dance caller because I designed every lesson my MBA student cohort experienced as if it was an experiment in Explore:Represent:Share. They were full of solo, pair, trio enquiry, presentation and reflection loops and the students got great marks in the exams. There was something in the Liverpool air that inspired radical ideas. Stewart I will ask my daughter to get me a copy of your book for Christmas. So pleased you had the World Heutagogy Day and I am a member of the LinkedIn group. Well done to all who contributed to the slideshare.

  5. 5. Stewart Hase & Chris Kenyon • What is the Nature of Learning? • Andragogy&heutagogy underpinned by humanism and constructivism; Andragogy with motivation- heutagogy with double-loop learning. This also challenges our deepest values, beliefs and ways of knowing. • Learning is a complex interaction of myriad influences including; genes, neurophysiology, physical state, social experiences, and psychological factors. • The learner may end up making a whole bunch of cognitive leaps and end up seeing the world in completely different ways… Heutagogy and developing capable people – Hase &Kenyon; http://works.bepress.com/stewart_hase/80/

Students who question theory, are also critical of practice, explore their own values – even when this is discomforting for mentors… John Hurley research publications; http://works.bepress.com/john_hurley/doctype.html
  12. 12. Barbara Brandt • The Learners Perspective; • Heutagogy as alter-ego. Using Stewart Hase, Edward Taylor, Ian Baptiste as learning alter-egos • “I learnt to do school at a very young age”>Find out what the teacher wants/do it/reap rewards of good grades. Learning that I wanted to do I did in my own time… • …“Enjoying this bit of informal e-learning” • In self-determined learning I could trust the negotiation process of reading and assessment. I trusted other students and remembered the considerable personal growth from stepping out of my comfort zone Barbara A Brandt Honors Student Minnesota; http://www.d.umn.edu/math/news/index.html

  17. 17. Jane Eberle • Lifelong learning; • Heutagogy, with its feature of double-loop learning, is not just for adult learners. It allows for freedom of thought, original ideas and the opportunity to enrich learning by active participation. • Combined with Universal Design for Learning a template that can be developed to allow instructors and students alike to be creative and enjoy a mutual respect of ideas Heutagogy: It Isn’t Your Mother’s Pedagogy Any More –Jane Eberle& M Childress; http://www.nssa.us/journals/2007-28-1/2007-28-1-04.htm
  18. 18. Stewart Hase • Learner-defined learning • Combined with systems thinking and the “search conference technique”heutagogy can provide potentially exciting training programmes allowing context to be determined by and application to be driven by the learner. • The facilitator needs to develop skills in managing groups using a Socratic rather than a directive technique and allow a dynamic environment to be quickly created. Learner-defined Curriculum – Dr Stewart Hase; http://sitjar.sit.ac.nz/Pages/Publication.aspx?ID=61
  19. 19. Natalie Canning • Practitioner Development in early years education • Participants recognised the significance of engaging with heutagogic strategies to support their reflective practice as they developed their professional identity &personal empowerment by investing emotional energy in learning; • Building knowledge and understanding, Changing &influencing others, Improving quality provision, Identifying where practice could develop, &Enabling their personal & professional transition. Reflective Practice in the Early Years – Natalie Canning & Michael Reed; http://philpapers.org/rec/REERPI
  20. 20. Boon HouTay • Transitioning from Pedagogy to Heutagogy; • A three stage learning process from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy through aesthetic appreciation that affords keen pleasure to the senses and charms the intellectual faculties. • The process emphasizes a holistic development in the learner of an independent capability, the capacity for questioning ones values &assumptions and to make unknowns known. Role of action research in workplace PhDs – Boon HouTuy& Stewart Hase; http://works.bepress.com/stewart_hase/57/
  21. 21. Roslyn Foskey • Innovations in Community Education; • Aligning the concept of adult learning with heutagogy provides insights on reflexivity that occurs when interactive theatre is used in community learning. • Interactive theatre is emergent, self-organised, adaptive & dynamic moving from scripted scenes to improvised performance through audience engagement with actors. We see the benefits of adopting a creative learner-determined process of engagement & the importance of the learning environment. Reflections of a lifelong learner on learning and community resilience – Roslyn Foskey; https://ala.asn.au/professional-development/2012-conference/
  22. 22. Stewart Hase • Heutagogy in Action; where to next? • Game-changers in education; the rapid rise of information technology; “experience does not exist until it has been communicated through #socialmedia” • Individual curricula NOT national curricula • Mastery of competencies – demonstrating capability • Changing educational policy from fixed assumptions about teacher-centric education – double-loop thinking for policy makers? From learning environments and implementation to activity systems – YrjoEngestrom; http://www.chat.kansai-u.ac.jp/publications/actio/pdf/no2-2.pdf
  23. 23. Fred Garnett • 2 Heutagogic lessons from curating the book • 1. Moving from subject-discipline to professional practice is heutagogic; subject–based learning can be presented as a linear process. Real-life presents itself as a set of problems to be solved creatively • 2. Learning online is best done as a self-determined learner. Creating personal learning networks that work for you… • More at Heutagogy Community of Practice Blog • http://heutagogycop.wordpress.com/ Heutagogy Community of Practice Blog; http://heutagogycop.wordpress.com/
