The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of the theoretical foundations of pedagogy, andragogy and heutagogy. A brief description of the most common pedagogical theories, cognitivism, constructionism and behaviorism, as well as emerging theories such as social pedagogy, Pedagogy 2.0 and Education 3.0 are discussed. In addition, the tenets of andragogy, including its linkages to transformative education are presented. Heutagogy, which is self-determined learning, is also presented. This chapter also provides a discussion of whether pedagogy, andragogy and heutagogy are on a continuum or can be exhibited at any time during the educational experience, particularly with the advent of more advanced educational technologies.
