About the Event :
The role of reflective practice in the context of education has been widely recognised for its significance. By engaging in reflective practice, educators can effectively enhance their pedagogical approaches by identifying areas requiring improvement, generating innovative insights and promoting professional development.
This workshop is designed to investigate various theories and models of reflective practice, and to acquaint participants with tools for facilitating reflective practice and fostering a culture of reflection within classrooms. Practical illustrations will be provided to exemplify the application of this cycle in encouraging educators to contemplate their teaching practices and refine their instructional strategies.
