Comments on Heutagogy and Lifelong Learning: A Review of Heutagogical Practice and Self-Determined Learning (Lisa Marie Bisschke) (IRRODL)
Andragogy as adult education, in the Netherlands mostly is understood as language learning for immigrants, teaching reading and writing for adults, education for people at the bottom of the social scale. Is heutagogy the education for the high end of the social/educational scale?
Heutogogy the way the teacher makes the teacher redundant. “the removal of the educator makes the concept of heutagogy impractical in a credentialing institution”
Heutagogy and peer-agogy, the autonomous learner needs peers for help and guidance. Key affordances of social media – connectivity with others, information discovery and sharing are also affordances that support self-determind learning activities.
Heutagogy as pedagogy 2.0.
Collaborative learning is also a critical component of the heutagogical classroom. (a heutagogical classroom isn’t that a paradox?)
Lifelong learning and assessment: assessment as an end to a learning process is contrary to lifelong learning. Does assessment fit into the framework of lifelong learning?
I like this article of Lisa Marie Blaschke. Good introduction to heutagogy, makes one think.
