Reflection
The process of reflection is a positive active
process that reviews, analyses and
evaluates experiences, draws on theoretical
concepts or previous learning and so
provides an action plan for future
experiences
(Kemmis 1985)
And…..
Reflection is a personal process that enables
the practitioner to assess understand and
learn through their experiences. This results
in some change for the individual in their
perspective of a situation or creates new
learning for them.
Why is reflection important
Because effective learning wont happen
unless you reflect.
Types of reflection
Thinking on your feet = reflection-inaction
Retrospective thinking = reflection-onaction
Gibbs Reflective Cycle
Why is this important
The outcome of reflection is learning
You need to learn to pass your CSA and AKT
You need to provide evidence in your ePF to demonstrate
learning
A large part of the ePF is the learning log and your own
ratings of competency
But…..
I don’t like writing things down….
I do it all in my head…
Reflective Writing: role and
functions
• To maximise the effectiveness of experiential
learning
• To evaluate one’s practice or a learning activity
• To promote critical thinking
• To facilitate the integration of theory with practice
• To generate theory
• To demonstrate that learning has taken place
Reflective writing: description and
feelings
What were the significant background factors to this experience?
• Describe the experience
– Sequence of events
– Actions
– Observations
• What essential factors contributed to the experience?
• What were you thinking or feeling at the time?
Reflective Writing: evaluation
• What went well; what went badly?
• Could I have dealt better with the situation?
• What other choices did I have?
• What would have been the consequences of
acting on these other choices?
Reflective Writing: analysis
• What were the consequences
of my actions?
• How do I feel about the experience?
• What factors influenced my decision and actions?
• What knowledge influenced my decision and
actions?
Reflective Writing: new
perspectives and integration
• What have I learnt from this experience?
• How has this experience affected my thinking?
• How does what has been learnt by the experience
relate to theories and concepts already held?
• What research is indicated and what relevance
may this have?
Reflective Writing: action plan
• How should I change my practice?
Behaviour
Standards
Procedures
• Should I suggest changes in policy?
• What constraints may exist?
Review changes and their effects!
Examples of descriptive and
reflective writing
