This is a link to a blog piece describing a session on reflective practice that a colleague Jenny Gibbons from York Law School and I delivered earlier this year.
Our aim was to teach the basics of reflective practice, and to facilitate some practical experience for participants to take back into their work.
My prezi from the session is here; feel free to be in touch for more information or if you’d be interested in organising a session for you and your colleagues on reflection and learning within a work-based context.
