reflective practitioner seeks opportunities for changing and improving
practice. However, the concept of reflective practice is largely misunderstood
and over simplified in practice. Whilst reflective practices are interested in
examining a given situation and discovering alternative practice approaches, a
critical part of the process (which is often overlooked) must be consideration
of the values, principles and theories which help inform our everyday practice.
three part series of one hour workshops provides an opportunity for
participants to reflect on their interactions with others and the effect of
interactions with all people who influence children’s learning and development.
participants will explore the principles and theoretical underpinnings of
reflective practice and be able to identify the characteristics of effective
reflection on practice.
workshop enables professionals to practice skills and strategies involved in
the facilitation of reflective practices with colleagues and parents.
