Helping Students with Self Directed Learning
Greetings from the University of Canberra where I am workshop a seminar on self-directed learning by Maria Northcote at Avondale College. She is talking about how to foster research for academic staff who previously mainly did teaching.One tool uses is "MOOBRIC: A rubric of Moodle skills and knowledge". She mentioned heutagogy, a term from Stewart Hase and Chris Kenyon, for self-directed learning, but expressed some skepticism that it is at the top a strict hierarchy with pedagogy (teaching children), androgogy (adult learning) below.
