Transcript of Reflection and Reflective Practice

What is reflective practice and why is it important?
Single-loop and
Double-loop Learning
Gibbs Model of Reflection (1988)
Reflection and Reflective Practice
Concept of
Reflective Practice
Centers around the idea of lifelong learning
Practitioner analyzes experiences in order to learn from them
Commonly used in health and teaching professions
Can be an important tool in practice-based learning settings
Many models of reflective practice cycle have been developed

Single-loop learning - practitioner continues to rely on the same strategies and techniques to address reoccurring situations, even when errors occur and have been corrected
Double-loop learning - practitioner modifies personal strategies, techniques and policies so that a new framing system is employed when similar situation arises
This model developed by Graham Gibbs provides six steps for a structured debriefing.
Education reformist John Dewey was one of the first to write about reflective practice in the early 1930's. His writings inspired others to examine the concept.

Reflection on Action
Occurs after an experience
Practitioner analyzes their reaction to the situation, explores the reasons around and the consequences of their actions
Usually conducted through a documented reflection of the situation
Reflection in Action
The practitioner allows himself to experience surprise, puzzlement, or confusion in a situation which he finds uncertain or unique. He reflects on the phenomenon before him, and on the prior understandings which have been implicit in his behaviour. He carries out an experiment which serves to generate both a new understanding of the phenomenon and a change in the situation. (Schön 1983: 68)
Described as "thinking on your feet"
Practitioner connects with feelings, emotions and prior experience to attend to a situation
Argyris and Schön, 1978
(Schön 1983)
Atkins and Murphy (1993)
Identified three stages of reflection:
Stage 1: Becoming aware of uncomfortable feelings and thoughts

Stage 2: Critical analysis of feelings and knowledge

Stage 3: Development of a new perspective
Atkins and Murphy
Model of Reflection (1994)

As you complete each section of the chart, apply reflective practice with regard to your personal learning theory. (The paper you are to submit by 11:59 pm, September 17th should be the basis for your reflection). At the end of the course, you will be asked to submit a personal reflection with regard to your personal learning theory and the theories presented throughout the course. Specific details of the assignment will be posted later in eCampus.
