Reflective practice enables educators and teams to pause and ask questions about their practice. It provides an opportunity for educators to pause and mull over questions that will support our work to improve. However, if we ask ourselves this question, ‘What is the difference between reflective thinking when compared to critical thinking?’ It becomes apparent that we need to consider how we approach reflective practice in our day to day. In this webinar, we will explore how we can embed this way of working in our centres and track the outcomes of this powerful approach.
Completing Embedding reflective practice into action: From reflective thinking to critical thinking will contribute one hour of PD addressing the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and aligns with the NESA criteria for Elective PD.
