Developing lifelong learning with heutagogy: contexts, critiques and challenges
The COVID-19 global pandemic caused a significant shift in instructional responsibilities as parents overnight became instructors for their children (Brenan, 2020; Tate, 2020). Resulting from this transition, we have seen several examples of heutagogy used by both adults and children. We’ve seen adults, now tasked with providing instruction to their children, searching in online forums or social media for answers and information. We’ve also seen adults looking to advance their own skills through on-demand instructional resources. Children, now at home full-time, were able to explore some of their own self-directed interests such as baking, science experiments, or other pursuits that resonated with them. These are just a few examples of self-directed learning and heutagogy (Hase & Kenyon, 2000).
