Lifelong Learning: Moving from Pedagogy to Heutagogy

Being a lifelong learner has been shown to be a positive factor in an individual's life. Many of our students are older and returning to college to pursue a different path. Despite the change in the demographic of the average college student, we continue to address our students with the latest best practices all focusing on a pedagogy of the knowledgeable teacher and receptive student. This presentation will present the rationale for changing from the typical pedagogy to a heutagogy that nurtures and supports a lifelong learner.This presentation will focus on moving from the cut and paste pedagogy curriculums to heutagogy- self determined education- as a means to keep the students not only engaged but excited.
