    How would you develop your

    understanding of the issuesraised?

  • 7/27/2019 Session 2 Developing a Reflective Approach

    9/18

    This is reflection

    How could you define the activity of

    reflection?

  • 7/27/2019 Session 2 Developing a Reflective Approach

    10/18

    What do we mean by reflection?

    the capacity to reflect on action so as to

    engage in a process of continuous learning(Schn 1983)

  • 7/27/2019 Session 2 Developing a Reflective Approach

    11/18

    Why reflect?

    We reflect in order to: Consider the process of our own learning a process of metacognition

    Critically review something - our own behaviour, that of others or the

    product of behaviour (e.g. an essay, book, painting etc.)

    Build theory from observations: we draw theory from generalisations -

    sometimes in practical situations, sometimes in thoughts or a mixture ofthe two

    Engage in personal or self development

    Make decisions or resolve uncertainty ...

    Empower or emancipate ourselves as individuals (and then it is close to

    self-development) or to empower/emancipate ourselves within the

    context of our social groups.

    (Moon 1999 pp23)
