Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | DPG Online | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.


===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===


Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Heutagogia  e o olhar sobre a aprendizagem do século XXI:

1- protagonizar a própria aprendizagem

2- educadores mantem foco no processo de aprendizagem ao inves do conteudo

3- evita-se aprendizagem focada no educador 

4- migra-se para o "mundo da aprendizagem"

5- explora e aprende praticando auto escolha e acao auto direcionada

6- avancar alem da disciplina

This learning theory may be beneficial in certain settings. Anyone applying it already?

Why educating the educators is complex

Why educating the educators is complex | DPG Online | Scoop.it
Teaching is both craft and profession -- and more.


Thus teaching is a deeply social and emotional activity. You have to know your students and be able to read them quickly, and from that reading make decisions to slow down or speed up, stay with a point or return to it later, connect one student’s comment to another’s.


Simultaneously, you are assessing on the fly Susie’s silence, Pedro’s slump, Janelle’s uncharacteristic aggressiveness. Students are, to varying degrees, also learning from each other, learning all kinds of things, from how to carry oneself to how to multiply mixed numbers.


How teachers draw on this dynamic interaction varies depending on their personal style, the way they organize their rooms, and so on—but it is an ever-present part of the work they do.

DPG plc's insight:

In our expereince those who educate others and facilitate learning are great at using different tools however they must be taken on a journey that creates both confidence in using the tools and answers the WIIFM. The demands and needs of our students are changing and we need to ensure we keep up with these demands and in fact be early adopters and not laggards when it comes to change.

Se priver de facebook ou twitter est pour beaucoup plus dûr que de se priver de fumer, de boire, de sexe ou de faire du shopping...un début de réponse dans cette infographie ;-)
