  11. 11. “In heutagogy, learning moves from self- direction to self-determination. The role of the teacher is to facilitate learning and students take responsibility for creating their own learning pathway by choosing what they want to learn, setting learning goals and choosing the most appropriate method of learning to them. In doing so students develop the capability to become autonomous and lifelong learners.” 1111 Higher Education Academy (2017)
  12. 12. “By opening up education, making it inclusive and accessible, and by encouraging reflection and self- determined learners we run the risk of opening up challenging conversations, between ourselves, and with our students, as it could highlight innate bias within our own practice” Julie Fellmayer, 2018.

Editor's Notes

  • “Enhancing learning and teaching through the use of technology” (HEFCE, 2009)
  • We do this a lot already at NCT. Everywhere I looked I saw parallels to my own practice as a tutor and as a practitioner.
    PT- I’ll come back to.
    POT – Open to new ideas, relationship building, developing trust confidence and openness.
    IOC – Encourage spontaneity and creativity, easier to be creative I an open atmosphere. That bit on the grids that asks for creative ideas. Renewable assessments (AN Pathway)
    ISR – sharing resources, adopting a CC approach, adapting and attributing resources. Sharing freely to disseminate knowledge. Innersource. Open access publishing.
    CC – networks for growth and sharing, participating in a community of practice, learning, profession. (What’s your own PLN?)
    LG – student driven, learner contributes to knowledge base, facilitation by tutors not teaching,
    RP – reflection and transparency, encourage RP for all, selecting and curating OER
    PR – both by students (peer to peer feedback, RPLS assessment), by educators, scholarship of teaching and learning, peer feedback is a powerful reflective tool.
    PT – aids openness. Social media, mobile apps, teachers and students networking
  • Heutagogy. Self determined learning. Potentially scaffolded to begin with then set free. Builds onto OP attributes and values.
  • Our students are already doing this. We know from conversations that our students are digitally literate....often more than we are. We need to look at ways we can facilitate their learning. To encourage critical thinking.
  • Open as risky. Catherine Cronin talks about openness being complex, nuanced and continuous reflection. It’s not a one time solution.
    In open spaces….dissociative annominity, online disinhibition, global viral reach. Strategies for safe online practice. Academic and personal personas.
  • In small groups think about the benefits and risks of working more openly?
  • Cronin notes that connections for OL are “about recognizing the ubiquity of knowledge across networks, the importance of developing network as well as digital literacies, and the imperative of facilitating learning that fosters agency, empowerment, and civic participation” (2017).
  • Things you can do…. Small changes to be more open.
    SM: Twitter, linkedin, Instagram, create an academic profile to keep things separate if that works better for you.
    Students… show there working out.
