5.2 Reflective Practice
Welcome to chapter 2 of the 'Best practice in teaching' module. In this slightly larger chapter (split into two distinct sections), we're going to explore the concept of reflective practice. This is a key element of modern teaching practice, and as this chapter will demonstrate, a great way to help you learn and develop your own practice throughout your teaching career.
Goals for this section
To understand how reflective practice operates and to understand the benefits of taking a reflective approach.
Objectives for this section
To be able to explain the structures of different reflective models.
To be able to identify appropriate incidents for reflection and to extricate key ideas from these to explore.
To be able to utilise reflective techniques and models to critically evaluate your own teaching practice, linking this back to wider educational theory wherever this is relevant.
