Beyond Reflective Practice PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Beyond Reflective Practice free pdf 'Reflective practice' - and evidence of it in portfolios, learning logs and other forms of assessment - is now a necessary part of professional education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In some professions it is also part of, or being considered as a vehicle for, continuing professional development and re-certification and revalidation processes. The work of Donald Schon has been influential in supporting this thoughtful basis for reflecting on the complexity of the professional world but that world has now changed. In this book the authors move 'beyond reflective practice' and begin by explaining why new ways of thinking about reflection are now essential. With an overview from the editors and fifteen chapters considering new conceptualisations, professional perspectives and new practices, the individual authors examine what new forms of professional reflective practice are emerging. In particular, they examine the relationships between reflective practitioners and those upon whom they practice- they look at the ways in which the world of professional work has changed and the ways in which professional practice needs to change to meet the needs of this new world. In addition the editors provide a conclusion that bring together the main themes from the book and suggest practical ways forward for research and practice. With contributions from some of the leading experts in the field of reflective practice, including David Boud, the book provides a thought-provoking look at the way forward in professional development and lifelong learning.
