Heutagogy – A Child of Complexity Theory

Viewer

Heutagogy is concerned with learner-centred learning that sees the learner as the major agent in their own learning, which occurs as a result of personal experiences. The teacher might think that he or she can control the learning experience but we think the teacher’s role is limited to the transfer of knowledge and skills. As well as being an agent in their own learning, it is impossible to predict the extent and effect of bifurcation. Hence, the curriculum and learning activities may become increasingly irrelevant at any point in the so called ‘learning process’.
