Keywords:Lifelong Learning, Heutagogy, Orang Asli Islamic Education
Islamic Education among Orang Asli in Malaysia is currently experiencing various challenges due to the current development of technology and rapidly changing learning patterns. Furthermore, the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted daily learning sessions for both children and adults. Orang Asli is frequently associated with dropouts, and researchers have spent the last decade debating the issue. Various efforts are provided by all parties involved to assist them with multiple learning methods. However, the learning percentage remains low. The Orang Asli community can benefit from learning with the concept of heutagogy by using self-learning methods that the facilitator monitors via distance learning. This research is a conceptual study that examines the needs of Orang Asli to heutagogical learning methods for lifelong learning from library sources, journal articles, models and theories and related documents involved. This research integrates Heutagogy principles with LLL skills elements to be implemented in Orang Asli Islamic Education in Malaysia. In this study, the Learning Theory aids in improving skills in self-determined learning and meeting the obstacles of today's learning.
