Pondering Practice: Unlock your Potential in your Practice through Critical Reflection with Briana Thorn

September 20, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Outline of Presentation
Join us to explore, unpack and dive into the practice of critical reflection. Exploring the legislative requirements, exceeding practices and real-world strategies, this presentation explores the practical implications and requirements around reflective practice. Contemporary and traditional theoretical frameworks are used as we workshop your own reflective practice, including how to enhance, embed and embrace this essential pedagogical tool. Simple, easily used strategies are explored and presented in a way that you can utilise to support your own knowledge. Through our discussions we will explore how together we can create a community of lively professional enquiry within your team as you reflect, debate and grow together. Critical reflection is an essential part of your journey because it is only when you truly know yourself that you can shine.
