Author: Stewart Hase and Chris Kenyon (2001) Southern Cross University Keywords: Southern Cross University, pedagogy, andragogy, heutagogy, higher education, vocational education, self-determined learning. Article style and source: Peer Reviewed. Original ultiBASE publication. Original URL: Contents Abstract In something of a landmark for education Knowles (1970) suggested an important change in the way in which educational experiences for adults should be designed. Heutagogy Education has traditionally been seen as a pedagogic relationship between the teacher and the learner. The distinction Knowles (1970) made between how adults and children learn was an important landmark in teaching and learning practices in vocational education and training, and in higher education. This revolution recognises the changed world in which we live. The thrust that underscores these approaches is a desire to go beyond the simple acquisition of skills and knowledge as a learning experience. Conclusion References

Dave Cormier of the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada is renowned for coining the term MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and for developing the notion of rhizomatic learning. International Centre for Educators' Learning Styles Robert Gagné’s seminal work is his conditions of learning theory.

The PAH Continuum: Pedagogy, Andragogy & Heutagogy Guest post by Fred Garnett Fred Garnett In my teaching practice, mostly with socially-excluded kids attempting to get some qualifications in college, I developed a number of techniques for showing them how to be successful on their own terms.
