Heutagogy or self-determined learning and learner agency.
Article
Full-text available
The combined trends of learner-centred teaching and ubiquitous technology use in the classroom have given instructors a unique opportunity to support students in developing lifelong learning skills. Heutagogy (or self-determined learning) provides a promising framework for capitalizing on these developing trends, drawing on established learner-cent...
Chapter
Founded in 2013, the Heutagogy Community of Practice aims to promote awareness of and to enact the learning principles that are its topical focus: heutagogy, or self-determined learning. Similar to Communities of Practice, heutagogy shares common theoretical underpinnings in the ideas of emergence, self-organizing systems, human agency, and constru...

It has been sixteen years since Chris Kenyon and I wrote the first paper on heutagogy or self-determined learning. It is an idea built on the shoulders of giants of educational theory and practice in constructivism, humanism, capability and the idea of human agency. Since then, there has been an increasing interest in the theory and practice of heu...
Chapter
Heutagogy, a form of self-determined learning, is a holistic, learner-centered approach to learning and teaching, in formal and informal situations. The theory is grounded in humanistic and constructivist principles and brings together numerous threads of early learning theories into a composite picture of learning that is suitable for and much nee...
Conference Paper
The normalization of deviance is a major organizational cultural issue that is modeled and enabled by poor leadership and filters down through the organization with disastrous consequences for safety and operations. Culture has been shown to create the circumstances that result in safety problems ranging from near misses to major catastrophe due to...

Article
Full-text available
Like many organisational endeavours, the success of knowledge management praxis is subject to the vagaries of human nature. There are many reasons, most of which are underpinned by the need for power, why people might choose to hoard, distort and manipulate information. Recent studies undertaken by the authors have demonstrated the way in which kno...

One approach to ensuring project success in engineering is to focus on standards and their measurement (e.g., EIA/IS 632 published in 1994, EIA/IS 731Systems Engineering Capability Model in 1998). In fact there is an almost global fascination with measuring competence and Taylorising modes of production and workplaces. The problem with measuring st...

Farmers know a lot about the importance of harvesting the best possible crop and harvesting knowledge so that they can continue to produce. Over many generations farmers have learnt how to prepare the ground so that seeds literally jump up to greet the sun. They know about watering appropriately, whether crops are prone to be affected by the wind,...
Article
Full-text available
One of the more interesting features of modern human resource development and management is that despite all the evidence that supports “person centred” approaches to these activities the most persistent model applied is based on control. One explanation for this is that the problem is not one of not knowing the theory or the facts since they are c...
