In the last couple of decades, workplaces have been recognized as a fertile and valuable ground for learning and developing human resources. Hence, "workplace learning" and "workplace curriculum" are no longer deemed as strange concepts, and on the contrary, indicate vast interests in research on learning in various enterprises. Recognizing the importance of workplace as an invaluable ground for learning and development, this paper draws upon heutagogy (self-determined learning) to propose a prescriptive model for workplace curriculum development. To this end, first the theoretical foundation of the model is described. Afterwards, the principles and assumptions underlying the model are explained in summary. Moreover, the five elements of this non- linear model are described and justified as "S3M analysis; SPL formulation; self- awareness; AVST learning opportunities; Empowerment evaluation, monitoring, and feedback", while the 3-elemented umbrella overheading the model is also briefed. Finally, the advantages and limitations of HWCDM are discussed. Methodologically, this study may be considered as "theoretical inquiry' as it aims at proposing a new prescriptive model in curriculum studies. For initial validation, the model has been discussed with academic informants and field practitioners and modified by their inputs, while it was continuously juxtaposed with and adapted to its underlying theory, principles, and assumptions.
