reflective practice

Refers to the process in which practitioners reflect and learn from their own teaching experience in order to develop their pedagogic skills and professional practice.

Reflective practice utilises a cycle of reflection–action–reflection in a continuous process of self-evaluation. It is a considered approach that promotes self-awareness and critical evaluation skills. Reflective practice might occur individually as a form of introspection or as part of a reflective conversation with students mentors and/or peers. The aim is to continually improve practice as part of the process of life-long learning.
