    Unleashing the Power of Learner Agency

    Table of Contents

    This is the third book about heutagogy or self-determined learning since its inception in 2000. Authors from thirteen different countries describe their experiences of using the approach in a variety of contexts such as art, school education, higher education, digital learning, work, green education, personal learning, online learning, elementary learning, and research education. The book is designed for the practitioner by focussing on how to apply heutagogy within their own area of interest. The context of the book is learner agency, which we think should be the guiding principle underpinning education and preparing citizens to cope with the twenty-first century. Included is a chapter providing an in-depth and updated description of the theories and practice of self-determined learning for those wanting a more thorough background.
    Stewart Hase
    Dr Stewart Hase has always been a believer in human agency, and he first realised that people have agency over their own learning while watching nurses learn at work in the 1970s. As an educator, he started experimenting with learner agency by providing nurses with the opportunity to negotiate their own learning within a very structured curriculum. The experiments continued on into higher education in both face-to-face and distance education, and in professional development programs in workplaces as a consultant for many years. Finally in 2000, Stewart and Chris Kenyon put a name to a set of principles and practices that put the learner at the centre of the learning process and called it heutagogy, or self-determined learning. Now an independent scholar, consultant and psychologist in clinical practice, Stewart is semi-retired and lives in a small fishing village in the north coast of NSW, Australia. In between traveling, painting, writing, fishing, golfing, and grandchildren, Stewart still seeks to better understand how people learn. www.stewarthase.com.
