Reflective practice is a process associated with professional learning, which includes effective reflection and the development of metacognition, and leads to decisions for action, learning, achievement of goals and changes to immediate and future practice (Hegarty, 2011a, p. 20).
To understand reflective practice, and the meaning of effective reflection and professional learning you will need to explore and critique some definitions. To do this, please work through the resource about Reflective Practice: What is it really? which will guide you on this topic. You will discover why reflective writing is beneficial, and be introduced to a number of models and frameworks of reflection, and some strategies. Before you begin, please take some time to do this activity....and look out for Emilia and Brett who are joining us further on.
