Pedagogy is the science of teaching to Children, Androgogy is the science of teaching to adults and Heutagogy is the science of self determined learning. Heutagogy is a learner-centered educational theory founded on the key principles of learner agency, self-efficacy, capability, and metacognition and reflection. Combined with today?s technologies, the theory provides a framework for designing and developing learner centered environments that have the potential to equip learners with the necessary skills for a lifetime of learning. In addition, application of heutagogy has been to shown to promote themes of both social responsibility and justice, as well as a more democratic educational process. This chapter outlines the fundamental principles of pedagogy, androgogy and heutagogy, or self-determined learning, and describes ways in which the theory can be applied, taking into consideration the critical and changing roles played by the student, teacher, and institution in creating a holistic, self-determined learning environment.
