The Difference Between Pedagogy, Andragogy, And Heutagogy

Jackie Gerstein’s passionate thinking about learning is some of my favorite to read. She is rarely pulled down by trend or fad, but is unquestionably progressive and forward-thinking in her approaches to learning and thinking about learning.

She and I also share a passion: self-directed learning. (As does the original summarizer/author of the thinking embedded in table above, Lindy McKeown Orwin.)

I’m embarrassingly interested in any kind of learning at all–formal or informal, self-directed or teacher-centered, authentic or academic. Doesn’t mean I regard them all equally, but I do see a role for almost any system or approach that can cause, support, or glorify the processes of understanding.

Gerstein’s presentation, “Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy of Mobile Learning” uses the concept of mobile learning as a spearhead into a broader discussion of how people learn–different approaches, different domains, and different technologies. We recently shared some thinking about what “Education 3.0” might mean as well, and are nauseatingly effusive in our praise of self-directed learning. (And a primer on self-directed learning here as well.)

With the progress of technology and the rise in mobile learning, now more than ever Self-Directed Learning–or Heutagogy–isn’t just possible, but natural, and almost awkward to not use, something Gerstein capture’s thoroughly and with her characteristic passion in the presentation below.

    Hi, love the blog on heutagogy and yes, Jackie’s work is fantastic. She is contributing to our forthcoming book on heutagogy. But heutagogy is defined as self-determined learning not self -directed learning. The latter is a subset of the former. More intro about heutagogy can be found at our heutagogy community of practice site: http://heutagogycop.wordpress.com. Or I can send you some articles if you email me on [email protected].

    I was shocked at this sentence in your article –
    “Her and I also both share a passion: self-directed learning.”

    “Her” is an object pronoun, not a subject pronoun. It would be correct to say “She and I.”

    Additionally, the word “both” is incorrectly used. You only need to say, “She and I also share….”

    You each would not share separately. Of course you “both” share. It would be impossible to share if it was only one of you. So, saying “she and I” is all you need to say.

    You could also leave out the word “also.”

    Just sayin’.

But the last two to three decades in particular have witnessed the outburst of several new conceptions and theoretical frameworks that, among other things, attempt to capture the latest developments in learning . This cheat sheet features a number of these concepts. I am also sharing with you the visual below which highlights three more concepts shaping the 21st century learning. To these I added the concept of Andragogy. 1- Andragogy Andragogy is a teaching strategy developed for adult learners.

[…] Blended courses are courses in which a significant portion of the learning activities have been moved online, and time traditionally spent in the face-to face (FTF) classroom is reduced but not eliminated. Using computer-based technologies, instructors use the blended model to redesign some lecture or lab content into new online learning activities, such as case studies, tutorials, self-testing exercises, simulations, and online collaborations. There is no one model for blended learning. The Difference Between Pedagogy, Andragogy, And Heutagogy. […]

It is named for Benjamin Bloom, who chaired the committee of educators that devised the taxonomy, and who also edited the first volume of the standard text, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals. Bloom's taxonomy refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). It divides educational objectives into three "domains": cognitive, affective, and psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as "knowing/head", "feeling/heart" and "doing/hands" respectively). Welcome!
