Author(s):

Abstract:

The paper aims to introduce the concept of Heutagogy, the needs of this concept, and how it encourages lifelong learning. Heutagogy is a term denoting a learning theory and educational strategy that prioritizes self-directed learning. It is founded on the principle that learners ought to assume an active role in their educational journey, rather than depending exclusively on conventional pedagogical approaches where educators impart knowledge to passive students. Heutagogy, a style of self-directed learning based on principles derived from andragogy, has made a comeback as a learning method after a decade of relative obscurity. In this pedagogical approach, learners have significant independence and self-determination, and the focus is on fostering the growth of learners' skills and abilities. The ultimate aim is to prepare learners effectively for the challenges of the modern workplace, emphasizing autonomy and self-determination. These methods prioritize autonomy, critical thinking, and active engagement. Heutagogy requires educators to act as facilitators and mentors rather than traditional instructors. Flipped Classroom is a technique of Heutagogy, in a flipped classroom, students take responsibility for their initial exposure to new content through pre-recorded lectures or readings outside of class. Class time is then used for discussions, problem-solving, and activities, where the teacher serves as a guide.
