ALiTE Leadership Series - Sustaining Teacher Learning through Reflective Practice
January 06, 2023 (Fri)
2:30 PM - 5:30 PM
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Research has shown the benefits of teacher learning for educators and their students. Through inquiry-based, situated and communicative activities, teachers take stock of, critique and enrich their professional knowledge, beliefs, skills and practices. However, a key challenge in schools is sustaining teacher learning at the individual and collective levels. This workshop introduces reflective practice as a practical approach for teachers to cultivate a habit of learning, unlearning and relearning. Participants will understand the fundamental concepts, theories and models of reflection and reflective practice, such as Schon’s notion of reflection-in-action, Rolfe et al.'s reflective model and Gibbs’ reflective cycle. Through video clips, case studies and group discussions, teachers and school leaders will explore their own learning experiences and share promising strategies on reflective practice.
