This presentation present the argument that a self-determined learning approach that involves an expansion and re-interpretation of androgogical principles - A shift in thinking towards heautagogy will enable the learner to develop space, promoting the learner as an “architect” of learning. Key concepts explored within the paper will include the concept of habitus, where the student is seen as an arranger and exploiter of space, the association with the notion of student as an architect of learning will be illustrated, where learning is arranged around activities rather than content, thus allowing the content to be context specific. The inter dependence of habitus, architect and heautagogical learning will be illustrated, where students will create their own pattern of ideas and experiences relevant to their own mind and being...promoting the “knowing,” “being” and “acting” of an engaging curriculum.
