Heutagogy Community of Practice

Advancing the Theory and Practice of Self-Determined Learning


This Community of Practice is curated by Melanie Booth and Lisa Marie Blaschke.

Melanie Booth


I have been working with adult learners in higher education for about 20 years, and my 2007 dissertation focused on mapping adult learners’ experiences of self-directed learning. I am intrigued and deeply interested in the role heutagogy can play in developing deep, meaningful, lifelong and lifewide learning practices.

    I am so delighted to find this website. My doctoral thesis on professional development incorporated heutagogy and I have been a convert ever since

    I am just learning about heutagogy. I am a doctoral candidate at Grand Canyon University. My dissertation will explore the relationship between community of practice membership and training transfer. Can anyone suggest an organization for my target population?

    I’m a doctoral student and I’m teaching myself about heutagogy. I really appreciate the journal articles, books, and blog posts to help me understand why heutagogy is different from pedagogy and andragogy and how it can be better applied in educational contexts. Does anyone want to chat over Skype?
