About Reflecting on Practice
Reflecting on Practice is a professional learning program that immerses novice and experienced informal educators in discussions about, reflections on, and applications of research and theory in learning and teaching. The ideas and tasks create and strengthen a shared knowledge base and professional language among educators within an institution. Educators gain a greater understanding of, and reflections on, their own beliefs, goals, and actions, as well as the educatrors they work with. There are three primary goals for the program:
1. Build shared language and understanding through delving into the literature on learning and teaching;
2. Engage in habits of reflections through observing their own teaching, as a means to develop their practice;
3. Nurture a tradition of continued professional learning to build a professional learning community within an institution.
