Course Description

Welcome to this course on getting started with reflective practice. The importance of reflective practice is something that has been emphasized for quite some time now, although the strength of this emphasis is not generally matched by the degree of clarity about what reflective practice is, why it is important or how to actually do it. This course has therefore been developed specifically for people who are new to reflective practice or are familiar with reflective practice but want a better understanding of what it is all about.  

The course contains a short video introduction, four video-based lessons and a video conclusion, accompanied by a workbook. The three lessons cover:   

  •  Myths about reflective practice Unfortunately, reflective practice is characterized by a number of myths and misunderstandings. In this lesson I clear up some of the obstacles to understanding.  

  • What is reflective practice? Having clarified what reflective practice is not, this lesson provides a clear picture of what it is all about.

  • Reflective writing This lesson explores the value and limitations of the practice of reflective writing.

  • Making it happen In this third and final lesson we look at some strategies for actually doing reflective practice.  

The Module Companion is a workbook that you will need to print out before you start the course. It contains space for notes plus an exercise relating to each of the three lessons. This is an important resource for you, as it will help to extend and consolidate your understanding and provide you with a set of notes to act as a reference source for future development.  

Reflective practice, when done properly, can make a huge positive difference to the quality and quantity of your work, your job satisfaction and your continued learning and development.
