Heutagogy

In education, heutagogy, is a concept created by Stewart Hase and Chris Kenyon of Southern Cross University in Australia, and is also called self-determined learning. The basic tenet of the approach is that it is the learner who should be at the centre of their own learning, and hence that 'learning' should not be seen as teacher-centric or curriculim-centric, but learner-centric. (1) Since the theory was first launched in 2000 it has become accepted as a practical proposition with its approach being particularly suitable in e-learning environments. Recent (post-2010) research into brain plasticity indicates that the approach can be useful in increasing learning capability. (2) [1]
