Reflective practice is a way of studying your own experiences to improve the way you work and live and it’s really useful for anyone who wants to carry on learning throughout their lives. Thinking about what’s happened is part of being human but reflective practice requires a conscious effort to think about events and develop insights into them.
The act of reflection is a great way to increase confidence and become a more proactive and qualified professional but it will also give you useful techniques to use in your home life too.
You will develop these skills over a series of three workshops.
What will I learn?
A series of practical workshops will explore recognised reflective practice models, through individual, small group and whole group activities using coaching and thinking environment approaches.
We’ll help you develop and build critical reflection skills so you can take ownership of your preferred approach to self-directed reflective learning. You’ll also gain experience of facilitating reflective practice exercises for groups.
Learning will be focused around four themes – self-awareness, active listening, leadership and emotional intelligence.
Theories and approaches will include: Gibbs’ Reflective Model, Kolb’s Learning Cycle, Schon’s Model of Reflective Learning, Rolfe’s Reflective Cycle, Active Learning (via Action Learning Sets), and Wild Writing.
After completing all three workshops you’ll be able to:
- Describe the purpose and benefits of reflective practice
- Complete individual reflective practice exercises to aid self-directed learning
- Recognise how to use a variety of reflective practice learning theories, actively, for individuals and groups
- Design a reflective practice exercise(s) based on a recognised model
- Facilitate a peer group action learning set
